On Sunday the Green Man Gallery is opening its doors for Leon’s Light, a day to pay tribute to 17-year-old Leon Thompson who sadly died in March this year.
But as well as remembering the Buxton teenager there is also help and support to reach out to other young people who may be having mental health difficulties.
It has been organised by Buxton Street By Street along with Connex and Anna Watson, a school nurse who volunteers for both organisations, said: “This is a day for everyone.
Between 12pm and 6pm at the Hardwick Studio in the gallery there will live music, games like tug of war, a giant human rollercoaster and support for those whose who might need it.
Come and join us for a day of hope, reflection and connection at
