Two women from Corby have launched a project to show their support and raise funds for a mental health charity.

Sam Walker and friend Elaine both run their own businesses, but decided they wanted to do something to show their support for Mind in Corby as well as nationally so they have just launched the You Are Enough project.

The aim of the project is to let people know that they are enough, they are loved and to encourage them to be strong.

A fundraiser was held for Halloween to launch the new project, including music by local band The 3310s, sale of You Are Enough items and a raffle.

The launch event raised more than £1,000, and this will be split between the national and Corby branch of Mind.

Sam said: “All profits are being donated to Mind who do an amazing job in our town with counselling and group sessions, and they are also now helping Nightlight Corby feeding the homeless and giving them warm clothes and toiletries.

“They rely solely on donations to carry out their work in our town.”

Prints and t-shirts sold on the night are now listed on Sam and Elaine’s websites, with the prints on www.elainevictoriadesigns.co.uk and t-shirts on www.shopmoonchild.co.uk.

Following the official launch, people will also be able to buy You Are Enough merchandise from Sam and Elaine who are having market stalls in Corby town centre on Saturday, November 14, and also on Saturday, November 21.

All profits from the sales will go to Mind, the charity which helps to raise awareness of mental health issues.

Every year, one in four people in the UK will suffer from a mental health issue.

Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.

The charity also campaigns to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
