We are delighted to announce that the international and award-winning Jungle Creations has signed on as our media partner for this Friday’s Sea Change for Mental Health cycle from London to Brighton.
The Sea Change for Mental Health event, which is being run by The Lead Agency in aid of NABS, will feature riders from some of the UK’s biggest media agencies and owners – including Mediacom, Accenture and Haymarket. Thanks to Jungle Creations coming onboard as a key partner of the event, the key moments of the cycle will be captured by an award-winning team for all to see.
We grabbed 10 minutes with Hannah Watson, head of communications for Jungle, to find out more about the company that will be both behind the camera and on the road for this inaugural event.

What made you decide to support the event?
As a business we really believe in the cause. We’ve done a number of campaign videos relating to mental health, working with organisations to help raise awareness of the prevalence of mental health issues whilst trying to combat the stigma surrounding it. Our team also love an outing, especially if it involves a competitive element, and they couldn’t wait to get involved. As video partner we hope to capture the highlights, and the great day it’s set to be whilst offering Sea Change the opportunity to use the footage and photos we capture to get even more people involved next year.
What are you most looking forward to about the ride?
We’re most looking forward to meeting new people and completing a famous cycle ride, it’s definitely one for the bucket list!
