Published: 04/05/2017

Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust Community Fun Days return in 2017 with the first event to be held in Edgbaston.

The first of a series of community fun day will take place between 12pm and 5pm on a Saturday 20 May, at the Trust’s Oleaster Site, at 6 Mindlesohn Crescent, B15 2SY. There will be a host of exciting activities available including fun and games for all the family, interactive and creative workshops, a market place, information stalls, a refreshment barbeque and not forgetting the live performances.

There will be a selection of live music including reggae band, One Love, and the Northfield Caledonia Pipes and Drums, along with interactive health and wellbeing games such as giant operation, beat the bleep, soft archery and world cup shoot out.

These events provide a great opportunity to not only find out about the work of Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and their partners, but to also help challenge the stigma associated with mental health.

The Community Fun Days are now in their fifth year attracting hundreds of people from across communities in Birmingham and Solihull to come together. Admission is free with a range of hot food (including halal) and refreshments from the Trust Catering Department available to purchase on the day.

Beresford Dawkins, Community Development Manager, said “Our engagement days are an opportunity for people of all walks of life to join us for a fun packed day, and to find out more about mental health and the support services that are available. We look forward to welcoming everyone to what promises to be a great day.”
