We’re bringing you a little positivi-tea with these feel good stories.
We’ve teamed up with English Tea Shop to share some feel good stories that will hopefully make you smile.
From keeping children entertained and communities connected, small and local charities are making special moments happen every day.
When times are challenging and days uncertain, it’s stories like these that can bring a little light.
Take a no noise moment, make a cuppa and enjoy!

Tea and Talk with Berkshire Vision
Thanks to English Tea Shop, the charity held a virtual Tea and Talk afternoon to bring a little bit of cheer and company to visually impaired people.
We’re funding Berkshire Vision’s Telephone Befriending programme, as part of the Government’s Community Match Challenge scheme. This programme matches volunteers to those the charity supports to build new friendships and help visually impaired people feel less isolated.

Young people given computer tablets
Heart Breakfast teamed up with TalkTalk to get devices into the homes of children at risk of being locked out of lessons. Children like Matea now have tablets to support their homeschooling…
