SPRING BACK, an anti bullying group, based in Girvan Town House will host an open day this week to promote anti-bullying week.

Anne and Macolm Kelly, who established Spring Back earlier this year, will open their office this Wednesday, November 15 from 10am until 3pm for anyone who wants advice from them.

They said: “We are holding an open day for all age groups in the Spring Back office on Wednesday, November 15 so whoever you are and wherever you are from, please drop in for a cup of tea/coffee and meet the team.”

Anti bullying Week 2017 is being held between November 13 and November 17 and is organised by Anti-Bullying Alliance.

Spring Back, the only one of its kind in the UK, have decided to host their open day to help raise further awareness of their cause.

The effects of bullying can have a massive impact on all individuals, whether that is at school, work, college or socially.

Spring Back is a programme set up by a group of dedicated people who have knowledge in the effect of bullying of any age group.

They have worked hard over many months to establish working connections with Police Scotland, social work, schools and many other reliant organisations. 

Malcolm previously told the Carrick Herald: “We are saving lives. Children kill themselves when bullying gets bad. 

“We hold drop-in sessions in the Town House because there are so many different groups which are held there. No-one knows where they are going.

“In some cases, the victim has to move to another class to leave school at a different time from everyone else.”

Anne added: “They should be treating the bully differently, not the victim.”

Malcolm and Anne are still encouraging those who are being bullied to get in touch with them via their helpline on 07501134914 or email: springbackagain@gmail.com
