Professionals from a range of local businesses took part in World Doodle Day on Friday 12th October, which aims to promote the benefits of creative activity. Around 30 people attended a creative networking event at Desklodge in Basing View, where they made new connections while taking part in various doodle activities, including adding their own design to the side of a Stagecoach bus.
World Doodle Day founder Jude Price, opened the event and shared her own experiences of how doodling has helped bring about positive changes in mental health and wellbeing. Speaking afterwards Jude explained “Doodling is a simple activity with big benefits. When you engage the right hand, creative side of your brain you can start to see things differently and new ideas can form. It’s easy to do and is proven to reduce stress, improve concentration and makes you feel good. It has been fantastic to see so many people doodling together, and we are delighted that it has been a success”
The event also helped raise funds for this year’s nominated charity, with half of the entrance fees being donated to Pelican Cancer Foundation, an organisation that funds training and research into ‘below the belt’ cancers. The organisers thanked everyone who came along as well as the event sponsors Bulpitt Print and Stagecoach for helping make it happen.
