Charity clothing firm handed £600 from Shaftesbury Carnival

A CHARITY clothing company that donates profits to help people get life-saving counselling has received a boost thanks to Shaftesbury Carnival.

The Dorset-based Brave and Determined Company (Bad Co) was handed a £600 donation from last year’s carnival.

“Every year the volunteers of the Shaftesbury Carnival put on an amazing show for the crowds and also raise a huge amount of money for local charities,” a Bad Co spokesperson said.

“This year, we were lucky enough to be one of them.

“This £600 will go directly towards paying for people’s counselling and will enable two people to receive a course of early intervention, life-saving therapy.

“A massive thank you to the carnival club and all the volunteers that make it possible.”
