This year’s Hatfield calendar, featuring paintings of town landmarks drawn by schoolchildren, will be raising money for the Jamie McVeigh Foundation.

The foundation aims to raise awareness that it is socially acceptable ‘not to be OK’ and to de-stigmatise the idea that seeking help is a sign of weakness.

Councillor Lenny Brandon, who organised the calendar, said: “The Jamie McVeigh Foundation is a fledgling foundation, which is doing some quite remarkable work within our community.

“A big thank you must go to the schools that took part, to Graham Price for knitting it all together, all the outlets that sell it at no cost, but especially the children whose drawings and paintings made it into the calendar.

“All of Hatfield’s schools were invited to take part but unfortunately not all were able to contribute.”

The calendar costs £5 and is available from Bobs the Butcher at The Hilltop, The Harrier, Palmers Newsagents, Setting Out Hairdressers in Birchwood, Premier Stores Hatfield Garden Village, Mather Marshall Estate Agents Hatfield Town Centre, The Town Inn, and the Birchwood Leisure Centre.

It can also be picked up from the following schools Howe Dell, Oak View, St Philip Howard, Onslow St Audrey’s School, and De Havilland.
