Eynsham Barbershop, who sponsored the event, were invited to Oxfordshire Mind's annual review meeting last week, where they received the Local Community Collaboration award.

Maisie Kingston, manager at Eynsham Barbershop, said: “It's such an honour for us to know we have helped such a forward thinking positive charity.”
