Hertfordshire’s leading privately owned residential developer, Heronslea Group, has chosen The Oli Leigh Trust, a mental health charity that helps teenagers see through the fog, as its chosen charity to support this year. The partnership, which is being announced during Mental Health Awareness Week, will see the award-winning developer supporting this incredible charity in a range of initiatives over the next 12 months.
Oli took his own life on the 1st May 2018. The trust was set up by Oli’s mother Michelle Leigh to offer support to others in the fight against teenage suicide and self-harm. Heronslea Group have chosen to support this extremely worthy cause.
Mental Health in young people has never been of greater priority, with figures at their highest level in years. A result of how the pandemic and lockdowns has led to a surge in calls from children and teenagers about anxiety, depression and a loss in confidence.
Jason Rishover CEO of Heronslea Group comments: “The mental health of young people at the moment is of great concern, as they deal with the ongoing effects of COVID, so it was a natural choice for us to support this amazing charity.”
Michelle comments: “The loss I feel for Oli with me every moment of every day, I don’t want anyone else ever to feel like this, which is why I have dedicated my life to this. We are very grateful for the support of Heronslea Group, their generosity will be an important contribution to our ongoing work.”
Mental Health Awareness Week 10 – 16 May is a time for everyone to pause, reflect and discuss wellbeing, the theme this year is nature, where schools throughout the country have been encouraging young people to enjoy the outdoors as well as discussing mental wellbeing in classes such as worry and sleep.
