A drama group which takes theatre to care homes in Weston has received a £1,000 grant.
The Creative Thingy Wotsit CIC was awarded the cash as part of a Community’s Champions programme by housebuilder Persimmon Houses.
Group member, Tania Bodalia said: “We’re thrilled to receive this funding from Persimmon Homes.”
The creative collective aim to improve the quality of life for Weston residents living with long-term health conditions.
Last year, working alongside drama practitioners, the group staged a dementia-friendly adaptation of Wonderland.
