Strictly Campaigning

Fun and games in the last half hour of Hafal's otherwise serious quarterly Learning Day in Builth Wells as we play "Strictly Campaigning".

My acting skills are not improving from a low base (see this post) and as the immortal Brucie I fail to capture the veteran song-and-dance man's lightly camp elegance and instead contrive to resemble something between a marauding gibbon and a German adult movie performer from the 1970s.

Others do better, not least Regional Manager Sharon Thomas and National Resource Centre stalwart Fred Dymott who exhibit a seemingly effortless terpsichorean fluency in the tightly fought competition.

Meanwhile earlier in the day Hafal Trustees have agreed our campaigning priorities for 2011 which will focus on encouraging people with a serious mental illness and their families to take matters into their own hands rather than wait for the powers that be to improve services from the top down.
