Kelly’s Heroes hopes to continue breaking down barriers and open up more conversations around the importance of not only managing your mental health but also maintaining and promoting good positive wellbeing.
A big thank you to everyone who has supported the charity over the last 4 years, and we hope that Kelly’s legacy can continue to help those in need.
Swansgate Shopping Centre donation
The Swansgate Shopping Centre in Wellingborough has been supporting local charities to commemorate the Coronation of King Charles III; in keeping with the King’s wishes to give back to local communities.
The centre runs its own Good Deeds campaign throughout the year where people can nominate community groups, charities and individuals who go the extra mile to help others to recognise their work and say, ‘thank you’.
For the Coronation weekend, Swansgate Shopping Centre gave the Good Deed’s initiative the Royal treatment, and kindly donated £500 to Kelly’s Heroes.
Community & Engagement Coordinator for the charity, Katie Macdonald went to meet the team at Swansgate at the end of May to say thank you and talk more about what the charity does.
