A pre-election coalition

Fitness in Mind 10 05 14I was joined this morning by not one but five politicians – although it wasn’t the forthcoming local elections we talked about, but a local initiative they’ve joined forces to support to raise awareness of mental health issues.

Russell Quirk, Mike Le-Surf, Julie Morrissey, Roger Keeble and David Tee are all Brentwood Borough Councillors who, along with others, are giving their support to Fitness in Mind – a joint initiative by Essex Mental Health Community and Brentwood Leisure Trust to encourage 18 to 25 year olds to sign up to a 6-week programme with the aim of improving both physical and mental wellbeing. After its initial pilot the plan is to extend the age range, and Essex Mental Health Community’s Wayne Banks – who also popped in – explained that its easy to help raise the £2-3,000 target funding for the project by simply texting “BLTX14 £3” (or another amount) to 70070. All money raised will go towards expansion of Fitness in Mind to include under 18 year olds – starting with a de-stressed swim for students after their exams.

To help raise awareness Wayne and some of the Councillors are taking part in tomorrow’s Nuclear Rush mud run, which also marks the start of Mental Health Awareness Week. To coincide with the end of the week we at Phoenix are pleased to be supporting the charity firewalk at the Brentwood Centre, with our Greg Dukeson braving the coals along with the CEO of Brentwood Leisure Trust, Roger Davinson. Russell Quirk – who’d taken part in a similar walk – described what they can expect, and in the process encouraged Julie Morrissey and David Tee to sign up too! If you’d like to join them and raise money for a charity of your choice details of how to register are on the Brentwood Leisure website.

To register for Fitness in Mind simply pop along to the Brentwood Centre Reception, or email nicky.smith@brentwoodleisure.co.uk – and if you’re taking part in either the Nuclear Rush or Firewalk, good luck!
