See/ Hear/ Read: ‘Todmorden: A Circle of Kindness Grows’

We’re really excited to bring you the comic collaboration from writer Emily Oldfield and artist Charlie Fischer exploring kindness in the town of Todmorden, from Free Word!

Situated on Yorkshire’s boundary with Lancashire, the extraordinary community of Todmorden has spent the last few years nurturing its local infrastructure. A vibrant hub of co-operative, social enterprise now flourishes in defiance of violent corporate agendas and government cuts.

‘Todmorden: A Circle of Kindness Grows’ explores the town’s rich history of kindness and looks at the different contemporary ways this manifests in its community. From pulling together during disastrous floods to setting up ‘kindness corners’ and support services during the COVID-19 pandemic, Todmorden is an example of community at its finest.

This collaboration will give you a glimpse inside the groundbreaking community hubs, pubs, clubs that put Todmorden at the heart of the sharing revolution. To find out more about the process of creating this wonderful collaborative comic, check out our interview with Emily Oldfield here.
