Monty Halls joins our team

We are very pleased to announce Monty Halls as our Patron for SHAW.

Monty Halls is a broadcaster, speaker, naturalist, former Royal Marine, marine biologist, travel writer and leadership specialist. His experience covers over two decades of leading teams in some of the most remote environments on earth, presenting wildlife and adventure documentaries, and working with blue chip companies both in the UK and overseas.

When I first heard about SHAW and social prescribing it seemed like such a sensible thing to me: I am a strong believer in the benefits of exercise for physical and mental well-being and gladly support SHAW in reaching out into the local community to enable people to get more exercise and also be more active participants in community activitiesI can see how the NHS would eventually benefit from such a pro-active approach to health and well-being.
