Ruth Cadbury, MP for Brentford and Isleworth, visited Lakeside Mental Health Unit on Thursday 22 July, as she was invited to a car wash event hosted by the National Citizen Service (NCS). A total of 13 teenagers came to wash staff cars.

NCS is an organisation where young people aged 15-17 years learn new skills and organise events in the community. NCS was inspired to hold an event at Lakeside because, "NHS staff have selflessly worked hard to care for us. It only feels right if we give back to the NHS."

This may be the start of a more long-term relationship with NCS and Lakeside MHU. 

The money raised from this event has been donated to NHS Charities Together.
