North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb and boxing legend Frank Bruno team up to help young people with mental health problems

 It is a cause close to both their hearts, and now a former Government minister and a boxing legend are teaming up to support young people with mental health problems.

North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb is backing a move by ex-world champion Frank Bruno to set up a charitable foundation to help some of the most vulnerable members of the community.

Mr Lamb has contacted Minister for Civil Society Rob Wilson to promote the initiative following a meeting with Mr Bruno in North Walsham last week.

He is hoping it may be possible for 15-17 year olds involved in National Citizen Service to support the work of the proposed foundation.

“We have worked together on a number of things and I have a high regard for him. He has been very open speaking about his mental health challenges.
