The first State of Mind annual dinner

The first State of Mind Sport annual dinner took place at Langtree Park, St Helens over the weekend.

More than 340 people attended to enjoy a three course meal, bingo, raffle and auction to raise funds for a fantastic charity.

State of Mind was established some five years ago by co-founders Phil Cooper, Malcolm Rae and Ernie Benbow and has punched above its weight since.

In the past 18 months, it has become a fully fledged charity and with that comes the realisation of raising funds to ensure its work can continue.

The annual dinner will no doubt have raised a significant five-figure amount for the charity, and praise must go to former player Danny Sculthorpe, for his work in organising what was a terrific event.

JDG Media has been involved with the charity since 2013, with James Gordon sitting on the Operational Board.

James said: “It was a pleasure to attend the annual dinner and see the hard work of so many people be recognised and appreciated by a large turn out.

“Being involved with State of Mind for three years has been a privilege, and it has also in an indirect way helped me to deal with mental fitness issues of my own.

“It is an organisation that is close to my heart and I hope to be involved for a very long time yet.”

We will once again be running the media campaign for State of Mind’s themed Super League round in 2016.
