A Herefordshire charity has celebrated its thirtieth anniversary at Hereford’s Courtyard theatre.

On Wednesday, June 26, CLD founder Chris Lewis-Davies, chief executive officer Nick Dunster and Simon Hairsnape from the charity’s chair of trustees were joined at the Courtyard theatre in celebration of the charity’s thirty years by Hereford’s Lord-Lieutenant Edward Harley and the High Sheriff of Herefordshire, Patricia Churchward. 


CLD is a Herefordshire-based children's mental health charity which sees hundreds of children, young people, and adults each year, offering counselling services among their many forms of mental health support.

The celebration event included a performance from five young dancers of Body Language School of Dance as well as moving testimonies from young people who had used CLD's services.

Charity founder Chris Lewis-Davies said she was so proud to see how CLD has grown. 

“Mental health support for young people is needed now more than ever," she said. 

"I'm so pleased to see how the charity has developed over the last thirty years.”
