There has been lots of positivity being shared at a support charity in Derbyshire recently.
The host of activities and events at Callum’s Voice, which is based in Alfreton, are now back in full swing after a festive break.
Callum’s Voice, which supports youngsters with autism and mental health conditions, hosts its sessions within Alfreton House.
After one of their recent new year sessions a spokesman for the charity said: “We made a super start to 2024 today.
“Our younger participants worked together brilliantly to build and play today in our small room.
“In the main room we experimented with origami paper to create frames and fortune tellers.
“Our focus was setting our intentions for the year ahead and using positive affirmations to help lift moods and build confidence.
“Our young people also made full use of our craft and art supplies.”
They continued: “There were also some really amazing conversations between our parents as we shared stories and gave advice.
“We received some good feedback which let us know that the drop in sessions are working well.
“Thank you for a great, positive start to 2024.”
