IN this heartwarming special episode for Christmas on BBC One on Monday 18 December at 8pm, Nick Knowles and the DIY SOS team are joined by EastEnders cast members to support a mental health community project in Harlow reports the BBC.
Driven by personal tragedy and a strong commitment to mental health, Angela Hannibal founded Butterfly Effect Well-Being following the tragic loss of her mother to suicide. Her goal was to create a supportive community for individuals facing mental health challenges.
Angela says: “I really could not believe that we were chosen, out of everyone! I actually still cannot believe it. It’s like a fairy tale.”
Until recently, the Butterfly Effect Well-Being has operated out of a cramped portacabin. In desperate need for a new space, Butterfly Effect Well-Being were offered the use of an empty building at the front of the Latton Bush Centre by the local council, but it was in a state of disrepair and needed extensive internal and external works to make it fit for purpose.

Christopher Beech: It's at The Latton Bush Centre in Southern Way.
I lived in that house at the LBC with my wife for many years. Wonderful to see some new life breathed into the old place. I'm sure the charity will make great use of it. I hope they fixed the leaking toilet haha!
