We need volunteers to help us with on the day with our Danceathon. The event is a fundraiser where people can sign up to dance for up to 6 hours to raise valuable funds for Many Minds.
Many Minds is a Bristol based mental health and performance charity that run workshops and make performance with people who have experienced mental ill-health. We work with individuals to engage with their creativity, improve confidence, self-esteem and build social skills and networks.

Spectators are welcome to come down and cheer people on in this fun event for all the family.
We expect around 200 people. There will also be some delicious refreshments, dressing up area, glitter booth and lots of prizes including a Mini Rig, goodies from Burnt Soul Clothing, gym memberships and meals from Bristol’s top restaurants.
