City charity is given a £1,000 cash boost
A CHARITY which works with adults with mental health problems has been given a £1,000 cash boost.
Peterborough and Fenland Mind has won the latest amount to be given away by the Brotherhood Shopping Park Community Fund.
Emily Gray, service development manager for Peterborough and Fenland Mind, said: “We would like to thank everyone that voted for us. The £1,000 will enable us to provide fun and educational cookery workshops for 40 of our users.
“The workshops will teach basic cookery and food hygiene skills, boost confidence and self-esteem, and can help to improve independent living skills, all which fit into the key principle of recovery in mental health, plus encouraging team work.”
The Brotherhood Shopping Park Community Fund campaign offers charities and community groups the chance to win £1,000.
Three nominations of groups applying for the money are put forward to a vote among ET readers. The one with the most votes wins the money.
The firm has given away £1,000 every other month since June 2011 and there is one more giveaway in June 2012.
