The Donkey Derby at Coventry’s War Memorial Parked on September 2 proved a huge success for Coventry and Warwickshire Mind’s Journey bus which saw a record number of visitors welcomed on to discover the range of free services our charity offers.

The annual event is a popular family fun day run by the Coventry Leofric Lions Club and its ability to pull in huge crowds ensured the bus was packed with interested people keen to find out more about mental health and wellbeing, helped also by the glorious weather as the sun shone all day.

Dee who works on the bus was available as a guide and support for visitors who even got the chance to meet her pet pooch Milly and our very own bus driver Dave.

Our sincere appreciation goes to the Leofric Lions for allowing us to join in their fabulous event to share information for positive mental health alongside a range of other local good causes.

The Donkey Derby celebrates its 50th anniversary next year and we very much hope to be part of this landmark occasion in 2018!
