LAWSKI 2021 CHARITY PARTNER DETAILS COMING SOON...
Charity partner 2020 – Batyr
batyr is a for purpose preventative mental health organisation, created and driven by young people, for young people.
batyr was launched in 2011, after founder Sebastian Robertson experienced the frustration and isolation of living silently with mental ill-health whilst at university. Sebastian recognised that it was time to have open honest conversations about mental health with young people, and founded the organisation, naming it after batyr (‘hero’), The Talking Elephant From Kazakhstan.
