Mind over Mountains Day

Some of our colleagues had an amazing day out as part of a walking day with Mind Over Mountains CIC and our Brand Ambassador and explorer Alex Staniforth.

The charity which advocates the outdoors for helping mental mental health and well being normally delivers residential events with guided walks, mindfulness, professional coaching, inspirational speakers and counselling.

Due to the pandemic, the charity has been working hard to find safe and responsible ways to support people during this challenging period. As a result, they organised special guided one-day hill walks in the Lake District and Peak District with small groups to maintain social distancing and minimise local impact.

Westgrove provided bursaries for colleagues wishing to join in and those that joined Alex and his team in the hills said they had an amazing day.

Our colleague Paul said, ‘It was great to chat to other people on the walk and share experiences. I feel revitalised from being on the walk and will definitely join the next one. I can’t believe how good it has made me feel!’
