Holding Space is halfway towards reaching its £3,000 target for items such as notebooks, pens, colouring books, candles, essential oils, chocolate and stress balls - all to be bought from local businesses.

Along with these, the packages will also include strategies on managing mental health and information on wellbeing, as well as a SAFE card detailing national helplines for further support.

The fundraising campaign was launched on May 18, to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week.

Hansa Raja-Jones, Founder of Holding Space, said, “In the current climate, many parents and carers have been left isolated with their support networks taken away. Levels of fear, anxiety and depression have increased and now more than ever we need to support each other.

“We want to share the message of kindness. Please help us to do this by making a donation.

“All donations will be used to put together wellbeing packages. We will support the local community and businesses by buying products directly from them.”
