The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

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.
