Final Total from the Gingerbread Cafe Fundraiser!

140619 Cheque from Gingerbread CafeOur gratitude goes out to everyone at Polmont’s Gingerbread Cafe (purveyors of fine gingerbread and many other delicious treats) and all those who attended their terrific fundraiser event last month. The event raised funds for three different groups and we are delighted to have received a cheque for £122, presented by Anya to members of our Women’s Group (pictured). Our Women’s Group took part in the day and also raised funds by selling their Bonnie Buttons and hosting a raffle, altogether this brings our total for the day to £235! This money will be used to support the Women’s Group.

Get in touch if you’d like to Branch Out

A group of service users are currently taking part in the Branching Out programme in the grounds of Forth Valley Royal Hospital, enjoying guided woodland activities for people with experience of mental health problems. Such has been the success of the project and the very positive response of those taking part, that we are looking for people currently using services at FDAMH who would be interested in signing up for another Branching Out programme.

The ‘Branching Out’ programme offers regular activities in a woodland setting, including nature conservation, art, exercise and relaxation, over a twelve-week period for three hours per week. This can improve mental well-being and physical health, offer new skills and provide opportunities for socialising.

The programme is delivered in Forth Valley by Forestry Commission Scotland and NHS Forth Valley, with support from Forth Valley College. If you would be interested in joining in please ask to speak to Robert or Susan (our Drop-In team). Susan has been attending with the current group (and loving every minute) and will be able to tell you all about it!
