The event took place on World Mental Health Day (10 October) at Addenbrookes Hospital, in Cambridge.  Around 70 people attended and the event raised over £200.

UNISON young member and Cambs Acute Health branch secretary Alex Montgomery was part of the organising group for the event and was also one of the acts for the evening’s entertainment.

Alex spoke about his own lived experience of mental health and included some comedy and poetry.

As the event was such a success the branch is likely to make it an annual event.
