Dorset Healthcare ‘Road 2 Wellness’ Awards

Road to Wellness LogoThe Dorset Healthcare ‘Road 2 Wellness’ Awards celebrate the achievements of outstanding members of our community.  It could be someone who has battled to overcome serious injury or illness, or who has helped others to do so.

The Road 2 Wellness Categories

Eight different categories celebrate the achievements of people who have received a health service provided by NHS Dorset HealthCare.  Those who are nominated will have made significant progress in their own recovery / rehabilitation, or will have demonstrated great kindness in going out of their way to help and support the recovery of others.

Our ambassador is on the short-list!

The awards mean a great deal to the winners and those nominated.  This year, our ambassador Calvin Glen is on the short-list, in the ‘Inspiration’ category.

We nominated Calvin for the hard work and effort he puts into raising funds and mental health awareness for us.   At just 16, Calvin possesses the confidence and maturity of someone twice his age.  He also speaks very eloquently about his lived experience of mental health problems.  Last year, Calvin organised a two-day musical fundraiser in Winton for Christmas.  He also wrote, released and launched a CD Single and album at the same event.

The ‘Road 2 Wellness’ Awards are taking place at Talbot Heath School, Bournemouth, on 4th April.  The special gala award night consists of a buffet followed by the awards ceremony.  Calvin will perform a couple of songs to complete the evening.
