We’re really excited to announce our partnership with Bath Mind as Mental Health Awareness Week 2018 kicks off.
Our partnership with Olympian Ben Fletcher and Bath Mind will promote the benefits of eating well and the impact of exercise on mental health and wellbeing.
At half the calorie count of the pizza chains we’re delighted to be able to offer a healthier, better pizza product. From our partnerships with local producers and farmers as well as our Italian suppliers, we’ve created the ‘Judoka’ pizza with Olympian, Ben Fletcher with £2 of every sale going directly to Bath Mind.
Ben Fletcher said: “I’m delighted to be working with Bath Pizza Co and supporting Bath Mind. The effects of eating well and exercising regularly are hugely important when it comes to mental health; so to be involved in this partnership is fantastic.
Bath Pizza Co are producing much healthier alternatives to the big chains and together we’ll be raising awareness of Bath Mind’s work and hoping Bathonians will be ordering plenty of ‘Judoka’ pizzas to raise lots of money for a fantastic charity.”
Hannah Roper, Bath Mind said: Bath Mind are delighted to work in partnership with Bath Pizza Co to raise the profile of Mental Health Awareness Week and to help promote the importance of exercise and eating well for your mental health, something Bath Mind strongly endorse.
