Stockport Progress and Recovery Centre (SPARC) in Cale Green, which helps people with mental health problems, has used a lottery grant to buy an electronic drum kit and recording equipment for their new music studio.
The centre was established as charity in 1985 and supports adults who have a mental health problem http://www.sparc4me.org.uk/ Ann plays the drums with volunteer Dave Rourke.
The summer Fair at Elm’s Court sheltered housing scheme in Offerton was a lovely event. In the picture with me is with Brendan Cojeen from the Wellspring – whose son lives at Elm Court, which is a housing association scheme for older people and people with disabilities. Everyone has their own flat.
I visited West Heaton sports club recently to see how well their Lottery-funded improvements are being used by the members. This year the club celebrates its 140th Anniversary – many Happy Returns!
