Spotlight UK's Show a Little Love Campaign

Dear Parents and Carers,

Spotlight UK's Show a Little Love Campaign

Spotlight UK is a Basingstoke charity that provides support to children and young people to reach their full potential.  They are about to launch this year's "Show a Little Love Campaign".


Mental health is an issue that affects many people. Latest estimates state that 1 in 6 adults experienced a ‘common mental disorder’ such as depression or anxiety in the past week and 1 in 6 children aged between 6 and 16 experienced a ‘common mental disorder’ in 2021.


Spotlight UK works with all children and young people and their families. It becomes the safety net when things do not go according to plan.  This might be when a child starts to develop mental health issues or is affected by domestic abuse.  It may be when a child experiences loss or separation or when a child becomes a young carer.  It could be when a child's family experiences poverty. It might be when a child, parent or sibling is impacted by terminal illness or long term illness.


The Show a Little Love Campaign provides mental health care packs for children and parents that contain items such as bubble baths, face masks, candles, shower gels, nail varnish for adults and colouring books and toys for children. The packs are aimed at improving mental well-being by enabling them to self-soothe and relax.


To raise money for Spotlight’s Show a Little Love Campaign, we are having a ‘PURPLE’ day at The South View Federation.  On Friday 10th February, please dress in purple.  All we ask for is a donation of 50p per child to donate to Spotlight UK to help towards their fantastic mental health support.

Yours sincerely


Mrs K Young

Deputy Headteacher and Mental Health Lead
