Battersea Power Station Supports Heads Together

Battersea Power Station is supporting the Heads Together mental health campaign by installing its signature headband on the north-east chimney.

The Heads Together campaign, led by Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is the Charity of the Year for the London Marathon this Sunday (23rd April).

The chimney will proudly wear its headband in the lead up to the Marathon, to coincide with a number of other mental health initiatives occurring throughout the week to help raise awareness of the issue.

The Battersea Power Station Foundation has also provided grants to a number of mental health charities that reside in Wandsworth or Lambeth borough, including Black Thrive, Battersea Befriending Network and Commons CIC.

Rob Tincknell, CEO at Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “On behalf of our shareholders, we are delighted to be supporting the Heads Together campaign with one of our newly rebuilt chimneys at Battersea Power Station sporting a blue headband in the lead up to this year’s London Marathon. Mental health is a really important issue which is finally getting the attention it deserves and we wish all those running this Sunday the best of luck.”

Ravi Govindia, Leader of Wandsworth Council, said: “Whether it’s flying pigs or giant headbands, stunts involving this magnificent building have the power to command attention like no other! I’m delighted this world famous landmark will be broadcasting support for such a vitally important cause and I want to thank everyone who has helped make it possible. The Battersea Power Station team is doing some incredibly valuable work with local charities and communities and this latest initiative raises the bar even higher.”
