The Chapel Allerton businesses will run the sessions from May 9-May 15, raising money for mental health charity Young Minds.

As well as mindfulness workshops, Chirpy will host a North Kind pop-up shop full of high-quality products designed to boost self-confidence, promote mindfulness and inspiring positivity in children.
