Falklands conflict veteran Simon Weston OBE has been confirmed as the keynote speaker for a mental health and social care event organised by Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust on Thursday, September 4 at Lincolnshire Showground.

Former Welsh Guardsman Simon, who was badly burned when his ship Sir Galahad was attacked in the conflict, will share his story and convey his message of single-minded determination to not only accept what is, but to turn that to your advantage by demonstrating how a positive mental attitude can help achieve great goals.

Trust chairman, Eileen Ziemer-Cottingham, said: “We are privileged Simon has agreed to be the speaker at our event and annual public meeting. We are looking forward to hearing about his road to physical and mental health recovery as well as learning of his incredible business and charitable achievements.”

The full programme for the Trust’s annual public meeting will be announced later this year. To book a place at the free event call 01529 222243 or email info@lpft.nhs.uk
