VIDEO: The Good Morning Project Ft. Katie Finch


In this new video project, Ailsa interviews inspiring people about what gets them up in the morning –in both the practical and wider sense of the phrase. 

Katie Finch is an excellent baker, keen knitter and also co-founder and managing director of Freedom of Mind Festival. The festival takes place across Bristol from the 30th September to 10th of October in the form of a series of diverse events celebrating and raising awareness around mental health and wellbeing.

As part of The Good Morning Project, I talked to her about her morning routine, what helps her to begin each day and what motivates her to get out of bed at all and do what she does.
