Charity of the Month: Shine

Every month we donate £300 to a worthy charity, chosen by a different member of our team each time.

This month, we’re donating to the Shine – a small Gloucestershire-based project, supporting mothers suffering from postnatal depression and anxiety, through creative art therapy classes, weekly drop-in sessions and peer support. 

The charity is the choice of Tessa Mills, who does all our subbing and proofing. She says: “It is UK Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week this coming week (29 April – 5 May), and so the charity I have chosen seems particularly apt. I have seen first-hand the incredible results from this charity, which helps and supports mothers who are struggling. This year’s focus is Mum’s Matter – and, being one myself, I couldn’t agree more.”
