Mind Yourself, a charity working to improve the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of the Irish community in London, will be hosting a fundraising event on 14th March 2014 in Ku Bar, Soho, 6-9.30pm.

The event – ‘St. Pat’s Hats’ – will see Jane Taylor, go-to-milliner for the Royals, join luxury shoe designer Liam Fahy and textile designer Claire Anne O’Brien, to judge a hat designing competition in aid of the charity’s work.

Compered by Absolute Radio’s Maggie Doyle, the judges will be tasked with choosing the winning design created by event attendees. 100% of all ticket sale proceeds will go directly to support the continued roll out of Mind Yourself’s mental health service in the city.

According to 2011 census figures, the Irish represent the fourth largest ethnic minority group in London. Britain, long the popular destination for migrants along with America, now holds several generations of Irish people within its borders. Indeed, as this population ages and as ever more emigrants make the move in search of work or simply adventure, there are those who experience mental health problems. Unfortunately, many are often unable to – or unsure of how to – access to the services and support they need, when they need it.

London's huge Irish community ensures that the capital's St Patrick's Day festivities will be a rousing affair. Kicking off on the Friday before the official parade, the Mind Yourself event hopes to celebrate both the deep roots of the Irish community in London in an alternative and creative way.

Event details

‘St. Pat’s Hats’ will take place in Ku Bar, Lisle Street, Soho, WC2H 7BA, between 6-9.30pm. Full details and event tickets (£20) can be viewed here:
