    The relationship between Ramsey Million Partnership and the Young People’s Counselling Service continues to grow and develop. RMP invested in mental health support for young people in the town several years ago, and this proved a useful lifeline during the pandemic. Ramsey Million Partnership members were invited to the official opening of the Annabel Davis Centre, the new base for YPCS in the north of Huntingdonshire. Both Warwick Davis and his daughter Annabel are patrons of the mental health charity. Partnership member, Roger Brereton was pleased to go along in his new role as Mayor of Ramsey and has named YPCS as one of his charities for the next two years.
