Helen, from Cool to be Kind (C2bK), recently joined Nita Jhummh on Chelmsford Community Radio to discuss Brian McGovern’s legacy and highlight the projects that C2bK and Street Support Chelmsford are currently working on.
The conversation started with Helen and Nita considering Brian’s life and work. Brian was a compassionate and beloved individual who made a significant impact on the Chelmsford community before his untimely passing. Helen described how Brian inspired Cool to be Kind’s mission of spreading positivity throughout Chelmsford and beyond.
Helen then shared the latest news from Cool to be Kind, including initiatives to spread awareness and expand the scope of Street Support Chelmsford. Street Support is an online resource that brings together charitable and volunteer organisations to offer immediate support to those in need. This online resource has already assisted many people and continues to grow.
Cool to be Kind has also strengthened its ties with other charitable organisations in the Chelmsford area and beyond. Recently they collaborated with Irons Supporting Food Banks, a support group sustained by West Ham United supporters.
Overall, the conversation between Helen and Nita was engaging and inspiring, emphasising the importance of compassion and community involvement.
