A bank holiday fun day is coming to Nailsea to raise money for a local mental health charity.

The event will take place at Nailsea Holy Trinity Church, North Somerset on May 27.

It has an array of activities planned to mark the 30th anniversary of Wellspring Mental Health Charity.

The fun starts from 1pm with a wood-fired pizza pop up, bouncy castle, and music.

The day's spotlight will shine on abseiling adventures down the church tower.

The daring activity has already brought in over £2,000 in sponsorships for Wellspring Counselling.

Those yet to contribute to the cause are encouraged to do so through JustGiving, with the Rev Ted Baines Charity offering to match fund youth participants' sponsorships.

North Somerset Times:

Chair of trustees Dr Mary Backhouse, a founder of Wellspring, praised the charity's growth and importance.

She said: "Over the last 30 years, it has grown from a small locally trained service to a professional counselling service serving young people from the age of 11-18 and adults.

"Under our current director, Wendy Griffin, the service has expanded to cover the whole of North Somerset.

"The need for mental health support has never been greater and it is good seeing so many people getting support."

She also quoted a former client who expressed their life-saving experience with the service.

"I would not be alive now if it was not for the support I had from Wellspring.

"Services like Wellspring are vital for the local community".

The fun day promises to be filled with thrills while raising funds and awareness for vital mental health services in the community.
