Edward Conway, chief executive officer, said: “The benefits of having a dog are well known, they improve health, reduce stress and stave off depression. This year mental health charity MIND is our chosen charity of the year. World Mental Health Day provided the perfect opportunity to combine the benefits of owning a dog and the positive effects it can have on mental well being.

“Judging by the laughs and giggles coming from staff it is fair to say that the day was a big hit.”
