A COUNSELLING organisation are appealing for donations from individuals or businesses in order to keep helping people with mental their health issues.

Trowbridge-based HELP Counselling Services supports hundreds of people every year across West Wiltshire, helping them manage crisis and trauma.

With NHS mental health services difficult to access, HCS bridges the gap and provides the support needed.

Since it began over 35-years-ago, professional volunteer counsellors, who give their time for free, have supported more than 8,500 Wiltshire residents.

HCS is an entirely self-funded charity and manages on a budget of £48,000 per annum.

They are making an urgent appeal to local business for financial support, so they can continue to provide their invaluable service.
