Every month we donate £300 to a worthy charity, chosen by a different member of our team each time. This month, our founder Chris Harding chose local project The Golden Iris, which is part of the Totnes Community Development Society and aims to help young people with mental health issues through creative projects and art therapies.
Chris says: ‘Being the parent of teenagers/young adults, I have been very touched by this local project, set up by young people, for young people. The Golden Iris is concerned by the increasing challenges they see around mental health, and have been working locally to provide creative spaces for themselves and other vulnerable people in the community. They know that through creative spaces, barriers can be broken down and people brought together, that perceptions of young people can be challenged, and a whole range of diversity demonstrated.
