Thanks to money from Five Ways to Wellbeing we were able to introduce our Poetry Buzz workshops. These were fun and interactive and everyone was brave enough to share their work and supportive and encouraging to each other. Many were surprised at their poetic achievements. The project won most innovative project at the Voluntary Sector Awards in 2018
Thanks to Derbyshire Voluntary Action – Small Grants Scheme we were able to secure money to continue these workshops.
