The GCBC team are joined by Catherine Roche, Chief Executive of Place2Be, the UK's leading school-based mental health charity. 

Catherine discusses the impact of the pandemic on children's mental health; the benefits of having HRH The Duchess of Cambridge as the charity's patron; and the charity's plan, in partnership with Young Voices, to smash the Guinness World Record for "largest simultaneous sing" by leading thousands of children in a rendition of Bill Withers's "Lovely Day" for Children's Mental Health Week in February 2021.

Good Charity, Bad Charity is presented by Keith Davis, Camilla McGibbon and David Prest. It is produced by Dan Hardoon at Whistledown and supported by the Centre for Charity Effectiveness.
