BOTH of Warrington's MPs are throwing their weight behind the campaign to remember Brianna Ghey.

The 16-year-old trans schoolgirl was killed in Warrington in February.

Brianna's mother, Esther, has partnered with the Warrington Guardian to create the Peace in Mind campaign.

The campaign's aim is to fundraise in order to help schools provide more mental health and wellbeing support for children across Warrington.

Since launching on Thursday, September 7, the campaign has raised nearly £3,500.

As a show of unity in Warrington, both of the town's MPs have shown their support for the campaign.

Andy Carter, Conservative MP for Warrington South said: "I’m very pleased to endorse the Peace in Mind campaign in memory of Brianna Ghey.

"It was humbling recently to sit down with Brianna’s mother, Esther, alongside fellow political representatives in Warrington and journalists from the Warrington Guardian who have all come together to honour her legacy.

“Brianna’s murder was a terrible shock to our town, the outpouring of public grief and community spirit in the aftermath of this awful crime was apparent for all to see. I know families across Warrington will help do their bit in support of this excellent campaign.”

Charlotte Nichols, Labour MP for Warrington North added: "Esther’s commitment to improving mental health and mindfulness in schools is so important and a powerful tribute to Brianna.

"Too many of us live with mental health challenges, and equipping children, young people and teachers with tools to support mental wellness and wellbeing must be a step forward.

"As we build young people’s resilience to face life’s challenges, we can help the next generation so that they can lead happier and healthier lives.”
