Darron Love, author of Annie’s Grannies, has sadly lost his battle with depression.

Here at Happydesigner we’ve often, rather jokingly but sincerely, referred to our authors and collaborators as a “family”, the Happydesigner family. So when things happen, good or bad, to our “family” members, we feel it deeply too. Today we learned that one of our authors, the wonderful Darron Love, tragically lost his lifelong battle with depression.

Darron’s family have set up a Just Giving page, where they are raising money to help fund ongoing support for men with mental health issues, as well as to boost and promote organ donation services. You can visit this page by clicking on this link. Darren was a well-loved member of the Happydesigner family, as well as a lovely person and a passionate writer. He will be deeply missed, and we hope that, by sharing his Just Giving page, we can all do something to help out people in the same situation.

If you do feel as though you need some extra support at Christmas, which can be a difficult time, please do look at the Samaritan’s website, where you can find all the help and support you may need over the festive period and beyond.
