Mind in Croydon on The One Show
Posted Wednesday 24 February 2010
The One Show on BBC1 on 24 February featured Mind in Croydon's boxercise project. The project, which uses non-contact boxing training to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of participants, is part of Time to Change, funded by Comic Relief and Croydon Primary Care Trust. The film featured three-time world champion boxer Duke McKenzie, who works in partnership with Mind in Croydon to deliver the project, and people who benefit from it.
So far over 60 people have been helped by the innovative project which won the Third Sector Award for employee innovation and was part of a portfolio of activities which helped Mind in Croydon win the national award for mental health and wellbeing at the NHS Awards last year.
