A Tring charity are trying to spread their message far and wide but they need your help.

Hector's House has been given a horse box that they want to transform so they can use it for events up and down the country.

Robert Stringer, who founded the charity, told us they're crowdfunding for the cost to renovate it:

"The lorry is really old and so, rather than try to redevelop it, our guy says he wants to put a new base on.

"That is what the funding is for. Mainly to get that done and give us our first year's costs.

"We want this to be separate funding for the 'Hec-tour bus'."

The charity are trying to raise £6,000 at the moment - you can add to the total here.

The idea is to be able to get equipment for their ‘Eat, Move, Love’ movement to as many people as possible, carry their literature and also create a private space for those who need it most. 

CEO Lottie Stringer said:

"We wanted to create a calm, safe space.

"So when we go into schools and corporate spaces, we have a room for that."

The charity was set up by the Stringers after Hector took his own life at 18.

It seeks to raise awareness of mental health issues and get rid of the stigma surrounding them.
