My 67 Minutes 2021 Programme Launches with National Probation Service

Our 2021 Mandela8 My67 Minutes programme launches today – Tuesday 16th March – with the National Probation Service in Cheshire, Merseyside, Cumbria and Lancs.

We will be hosting a presentation to their Corporate Governance Board and delivery of 600 Long Walk to Freedom books for their clients and their children.

In a few weeks time, Marc Spender will be delivering a programme of 67 minute physical fitness classes to staff and clients, and Grace Pennington will be delivering a series of 67 minute Yoga classes.

Then in May, during Black Inclusion Week 10th -16th May, we will see our My67 Minutes programme delivered across the UK. We have been working with Paul Sesay at Inclusive Companies and a number of inspirational black leaders since the tragic death of George Floyd to make this happen.

Sonia Bassey, Chair of Mandela8, said “We started this programme in 2018 when we came back from South Africa. We said we wanted to bring it back to the UK. From Liverpool to the UK in 4 years.”

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” …Nelson Rolihalahla Mandela
