Mental Health Awareness Week is a chance to get together and share stories, and CALM was lucky to spend it with some of our incredible supporters across various events. Here’s a look back at some incredible moments from the week…
The Connor Brothers auction their art for CALM
British art duo The Connor Brothers auctioned an amazing oil painting at the Maddox Gallery in West London. Our patron Professor Green played auctioneer – and made quite a job of it too – and the guys made a massive £60,000 for CALM. Check out their interview with Book of Man here.
#TeamCALM take on the Hackney Half
Did the London heat stop this neon-orange-clad troop from smashing the Hackney Half? Did it heck. £12,500 raised for CALM and tonnes of great chat. Legends.
CALM rocks the Great Escape
Somewhere beyond that huge crowd are our Great Escape headliners @Bully. What a blast!
