It was a pleasure and a privilege to meet Lord and Lady Dannatt today. They both have a passionate interest in mental health and are patrons of mental health charities.

Lord Dannatt was previously the head of the British Army, and campaigns for the mental health and wellbeing of current and former Armed Forces personnel.

Lady Dannatt is the current Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk, The Queen’s representative in the county, and supports many local charities, including Norfolk and Waveney Mind and Norwich City Community Sports Foundation.

I spent an hour in their company, and their willingness to rally their considerable connections across the county behind my cause is hugely appreciated.

Oh, and the doggo is called Scrumpy, and she’s my new friend. We had tummy rubs and all sorts.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring? This is turning into a quite remarkable journey…
