Noodlebox managing partner Jim Hayden and CEO Jeremy Wilson presented a $10,000 cheque to Canadian Mental Health Association program manager Jocelyn de Montmorency and employment job coach Geoff Moffett. The money was raised through the proceeds of Noodlebox sales in Greater Victoria on Sept. 20 and will benefit local programs such as Gatekeeper Training, where people are trained to help those who may be at risk of suicide. Hayden, part owner of four Noodlebox locations in Victoria, started this fundraiser in honour of his late brother Will who he tragically lost to suicide in 2010.
