Funding for carers

Local community group Wyldwoods celebrated after being awarded National Lottery funding. The group, based at Dean Corner Paddock in Broseley, received £10,000 to support its work with Shropshire’s unpaid carers. Since opening in 2007, they now have three sessions a week with activities such as painting, crafting and cooking.

Founder Steph Brett said, “We’re delighted that the National Lottery Community Fund has recognised our work in this way. Now we’ll be able to press on with our plans to broaden the range of opportunities available to unpaid carers who currently have very few opportunities available to them. This is important because it helps to build relationships with others facing similar challenges and to create their own supportive circles of friends and peers.”

Workshops include silk felted scarves, enameling, natural printed books and many more. For more information, visit wyldwoods.co.uk/or call 01952 884224.
