Graham Colbourne, Director at Imperial Roofing Supplies Ltd, said:
“We support Lamp as this is a charity that is close to our hearts. Lamp needs all of the extra help that it can get to help guide people in need to find the correct support they require for their mental health. This is such an important underfunded area, even more so now due to the economic crisis and dysfunctional government. We need to stand together, support each other each and every day, and remember that it’s good to talk. Mental health matters.”
Matt Barton, Community and Community Engagement Manager for Lamp, added:
“The event will be a fun afternoon for pool players of all abilities. Taking part in sports, such as pool, can be a great way to facilitate conversations around mental health. We hope the event raises awareness of the importance of talking about mental health, as well as much-needed funds to support our mental health advocacy services.”
