Shedding Shoulder to Shoulder
Mark Smith is chair of Men’s Shed Guernsey. Along with co-conspirators Marcel Lenormand and Bella Farrell he was inspired to establish a Men’s Shed in Guernsey following Patrick Abrahams talk at Thrive 2020. As one of the founders of the MUG ride and being connected to MUG since it’s inception Mark saw the opportunity to supplement MUG’s focus on breaking the taboo’s around discussing Men’s physical health with creating an environment which facilitates the breaking down of the barriers that prevent Men from talking about their mental health. When he’s not shedding, Mark spends his time with his family and his bike.
