“I’m so proud to introduce you all to ‘Hats On For Mind’, a campaign for better mental health. Along with my friends @therealjuliabradbury, @officialdavidseaman and @seanfletchertv, I’ve designed a hat which not only gives 100% of its profits to @mindcharity but is also about encouraging everyone to get outdoors this winter for our mental health.

“Click the link in my bio and get yours from @gooutdoors… get outdoors and share your selfies #hatsonformind. This is not a paid campaign, it is something I’m working on with my branded partners @gooutdoors”.
