Thanks to the CashFax Lottery and it’s Calderdale Cares Fund, Shibden Self-help group can continue supporting vulnerable people a little easier this winter.

The Self-Help Group (based at Heatherwood Farm) does some amazing work assisting people living with stress and depression. They meet every other Tuesday to provide a comfortable empathetic environment, to help reduce feelings of isolation, self-blame, guilt and fear. For more information contact Heatherwood Farm on 07887853154.

“It’s a great feeling to know you’re a part of helping such nice organisations” said lottery manager Richard Watmough. “All our members are helping to give something back to support local people, this time they’ve helped people going through hard times. The Self Help group does some great work, they’re certainly a worthy cause!”
