Shrewsbury Lantern Walk to Celebrate World Mental Health Day

The Green Oak Foundation, along with several other Shrewsbury-based mental health organisations, are marking World Mental Health Day with a lantern walk through the town. This year's theme is Dignity. Green Oak are celebrating by holding a  sponsored walk from St Julian's Friars through the Quarry and town centre on Saturday 10th October. The walk will start at 7pm and is expected to last for an hour and a half. Walkers can either be sponsored or give a donation on the evening, with all proceeds going to The Green Oak Foundation to help them continue to provide affordable counselling for the people of Shropshire. Please bring a lamp (no naked flames) or torch light. The walk is expected to reach the Square at approximately 7.30pm for photographs and a water stop before continuing back to the starting point in St Julian's Friars.
