Pioneering issues

COUNCIL chiefs have helped to secure lottery funding worth nearly £10,000 for a pioneering local group that helps people suffering with mental health issues.

Photographic Minds is a photographic club – immersing its members in a creative, social hobby that improves confidence and boosts self-esteem.

The Big Lottery Fund Awards for All grant was awarded to help the group recruit more members – and provide extra equipment including cameras and computers.

Photographic Minds meets every Saturday morning from 10am in the Millennium Centre, Corporation Street, St Helens. More details from David Hemming on 0758 098 5803.
