Oxleas joins Great Get Together in Woolwich

Great Get Together 2016

Oxleas was again part of Saturday’s Great Get Together event in Woolwich, which proved to be a great day out for all the family.

The event, held at the Royal Artillery Barracks, was a family festival to celebrate culture, music, health and fitness. It also incorporated a celebration of Armed Forces Day.

A number of our services took part and were based in the health marquee. Our Older People’s Mental Health, Contraception and Sexual Health (CASH) and Greenwich Time to Talk were all represented and visitors were also able to find out more about Children’s Services and our unique website HeadScape, which offers mental health support to young people.

Oxleas’ stakeholder engagement team, supported by governors Jenny Kay, Fola Balogun, Baeti Mothobi, Stephen Brooks, Ben Spencer, Richard Diment and Raja Rajendran, promoted our membership, signing up more than 100 new members on the day. In addition, they talked about opportunities to become a governor,  the developments taking place at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup and at Highpoint House on Shooters Hill, both of which were of great interest to local people.

Governor, Ben Spencer, said: “People were really enthusiastic about Oxleas and the work that we do.  I am delighted by the number of people who signed up to become members.”
