Shaftesbury Schoolgirl Collecting Chocolate Treats For Families In Need

13-year-old Annie Richardson is concerned that this difficult year has affected the mental well-being of many Shaftesbury residents.

Annie has partnered with Abbey View Medical Centre to create an online support group, Proper Fun People. It allows local teenagers to discuss anxiety and stress with people their own age.

Now, Annie is collecting chocolates that will be offered to the members of Blackmore Vale GP’s low-cost shop, The Vale Pantry, over in Sturminster Newton. You can drop off chocolates before the 20th December at 37 Thomas Hardy Drive.
