Local charity the Chill Out Club has secured £1,100 of funding in the latest round of awards from Corra Foundation. The money will be used to help pay the rent of the premises the group uses.
Mary Craig OBE, Chief Executive of Corra Foundation, said: “The Chill Out Club offers peer support and a meeting place for people who have been affected by mental health issues. With activities ranging from pool to knitting there are lots of opportunities for people to get involved and spend time in a relaxed, friendly environment. This sort of support makes a massive difference to people’s day to day lives, and we know that having basic costs such as rent covered mean people can get on with putting their efforts into delivering their much needed services.”
