On Thursday 5 October 2017 the day dawn grey – overcast and raining menacingly. Not the ideal day for transporting audio mixers, microphones and other assorted items into a school for a major outside broadcast. Fortunately, by lunchtime, the day had changed completely, and all was set fair for our ‘school trip’.
On Sunday 20th August 2017 a team of volunteers from CHBN were at Sainsbury’s in Truro raising funds for the Hospital Radio service by packing bags and helping customers with their shopping.
The team raised a fantastic £688.39. A heartfelt thank you to all the shoppers who supported us on the day.
Two Truro organisations which promote good mental health - and who have both recently featured on CHBN - are joining forces to host a special evening to mark World Mental Health Day this October.
Stacie Clark of New Day Knitwear and Hayley Stanton of Quiet Connections will be opening the doors to their office so that people who have been affected by, or know someone who has been affected by, mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and low self-esteem can connect and create with one another in a calm, relaxed environment.
