Centre33 offers support and counselling for young people, and seen a surge in demand for its services over the last year.
PC Rampley said: “The pandemic has sadly caused children’s mental health to deteriorate.

He added: “I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated and wished me good luck already.
