CMRF Staff Walk & Chill Session in Park


The staff of the Canterbury Medical Research Foundation know how much mental health affects the population, and in particularly, has affected Canterbury in the last six years.

The proceeds of our charity's annual Wine & Art Auction this year will be going to a wonderful Cantabrian researcher, Professor Julia Rucklidge, who is researching the role of micronutrients in the treatment of depression & ADHD in both adults and children - so this topic is very close to our hearts.

We are very happy to be supporting Mental Health Awareness Week.
