Story

In memory of Mark Hanson who for so long bravely battled depression.

In his 36 years Mark achieved so much. He was recognised as a true pioneer in online public relations who's thinking and ideas contributed significantly to the development of the profession. His unstinting work for the Labour Party modernised how it communicated with both its members and the public. 

Please make a contribution, large or small, to help the work of MIND, the UK's leading charity for better mental health. Alternatively you can make a donation to the Mayhew Animal Home.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues.
