Arts and crafts, singing and lunch in Weston-Super-Mare with community group Our Way Our Say.
Our Way, Our Say is a weekly community group offering activities within the Coronation Estate in Weston-Super-Mare. This project has been made possible via a £30,392 grant from People’s Health Trust, with money raised through The Health Lottery South West.
The two-year project will provide weekly sessions requested by residents including an arts and crafts morning, a singalong lunch club and community cooking activities followed by a meal. Beneficiaries will be older residents experiencing social isolation. Ultimately, the project aims to tackle these issues by bringing people together to make social links and improve community cohesion.
Chris Lunn, The Health Lottery in the South West spokesperson, said: “The funds raised through The Health Lottery in the South West are changing and improving lives. To date, over £100 million has been raised through The Health Lottery for good causes such as this one, of which £9.4 million has been raised for the South West. We hope to make even more for good causes when Health Lottery South West opens in November.”
