Mr Wolford, said: "I am trying to raise funds and awareness for the charity MIND. It is a charity that has helped out my family in the past before and I feel like just before things open up again I kind of want to give something back to the charity.

"The charity has really helped my family out and the website has provided great advice and has directed us to services for my family.
