MHSOP Olympic Relay
On Thursday 9th August we held an Olympic relay in order to raise money for Alzheimer's Society.
Staff from Shelley, Kingsley and Bronte ward did a five lap relay from Ashfield Community Hospital to Millbrook Mental Health Unit. We were all dressed in British colours, with hats, flags and tutus! The patients on Shelley ward made an Olympic touch which was carried through the area, the sun was shining and staff have said it was a very enjoyable day. Staff were greeted by the patients on the wards where our efforts were celebrated. A patient from Kingsley ward said, "It is lovely what you are doing, you are raising money for a very good cause". We met some very generous people who donated money to Alzheimer's Society, we are passionate about our client group and it was nice to be able to raise money to help "lead the fight against dementia"!
