Holly explained: "We always include five positive stories, and we aim to send the email out at about 7pm (BST) each weeknight. Bethan also creates a positive quote each day to put at the top of the email, which brings some colour into it. We give a brief overview of the stories, along with links to their original source if people want to read more."
Much to their surprise, there is an appetite for feel-good news stories.
"The response so far has been amazing. We thought we would get about 10 people who just signed up because they knew us, but we have had people from all over the world subscribe," they said in a statement.
"A lot of people have sent us messages saying that they really enjoy reading the emails every evening, and everyone has been really supportive, which makes us think that we are doing something that people genuinely want to see. It’s been quite overwhelming really."
