As many of you will be aware the club has started a new programme to raise awareness of mental health under the banner of the Mario Curtis Foundation.This is a subject that either has, or will touch us all during our lives either effecting ourselves or our loved ones. We will be running a long term programme in an attempt to break down the stigma attached to mental health issues and also attempting to educate all of our club members, young and not so young, through workshops and seminars.

We recently held a Gala Dinner and Auction night at the club to launch this initiative which raised a staggering £10,000 through the generosity of the the local business community and our our own club members.
