Mental Health is More Important than Cards

A Morpeth business has swapped cards for good deeds

Mental Health is More Important than Cards

"People need support now more than ever "
Tony Carter

The growing problem of mental health issues caused by the COVID pandemic has prompted a Northumberland business to donate to a Morpeth charity in lieu of sending Christmas cards and gifts to their clients. 

 Planning expert, Tony Carter from Morpeth-based planning consultancy, Carter-Smith decided that spending his Christmas budget on good causes would be a better thing to do than sending Christmas cards. 

“We all know someone whose mental health has been affected in some way by being isolated from others or from the constant worry of not knowing if their job or business is going to come to an end. There’s been a worrying increase in caseloads for mental health charities thanks to the COVID situation so I decided to help by donating to Contact (Morpeth Mental Health Group). 

“Contact work with local people to improve their mental wellbeing in a safe and supportive environment. They provide counselling and therapy services, social activities, day trips, respite breaks and holidays as well as various workshops. I’ve donated £500 which I hope will bring some much-needed help to someone by giving them professional support and that is much more meaningful to me than sending cards – especially so this Christmas,” said Tony.

Carter Smith offers a one-stop shop for all aspects of planning, including complex local development plan requirements, planning applications and appeals. Their offices are based at Coopies Lane in Morpeth.
