Heads Together, official charity of the year for the London Marathon, has turned this Sunday’s event into the ‘mental health marathon’, in order to get the country talking about mental health.
The charity announced today that a number of buildings and landmarks will get behind the campaign by donning headbands including Battersea Power Station and the Thames Water Tower on the Shepherd’s Bush roundabout.
In addition to wrapping one of its iconic chimneys in a Heads Together headband, eight of Battersea Power Station’s employees – who are themselves mental health ambassadors – are wearing the headbands in support of this cause.
Battersea Power Station CEO Rob Tincknell said: “On behalf of our shareholders, we are delighted to be supporting the Heads Together campaign with one of our newly rebuilt chimneys at Battersea Power Station sporting a blue headband in the lead up to this year’s London Marathon.
“Mental health is a really important issue which is finally getting the attention it deserves and we wish all those running this Sunday the best of luck.”
