Mark Shotton – LooseHeadz

I chatted to Mark Shotton about his extensive and well-travelled rugby life and how it led to him co-founding the mental health charity LooseHeadz. This conversation rolls from funny tales set in rugby clubhouses to moments of genuine poignancy.

I loved chatting to Mark and found the whole thing genuinely uplifting. I hope you enjoy.
