Healthy Arts are delighted to announce receipt of an early Christmas present in the form of Live Well Make Art microgrants from Cartwheel Arts to our artists, Bob Kettle and Julie McKiernan. These will fund research projects into songwriting within the hospice and journal therapy with patients with chronic disease.

Healthy Arts are proud to announce that four of our Paperback Writers have had their work featured in the new Live from Worktown Anthology 4: 2017 ‘Childhood and Change’ launched at Waterstones in Bolton.

The good news keeps coming for Healthy Arts at the moment as we were delighted to accept a cheque from Age UK’s Ambition for Ageing fund to buy equipment for MemorabLEIGH. This is our reminiscence/local history group which meets on Tuesdays 1-3pm at The Old Grammar School in Railway Road, aimed at anyone 50+ who wants to talk about their life in, or find out about the history of, our wonderful little town of Leigh. 3 per session includes refreshments. Thanks to Age UK we will now be able to buy local history resources and the equipment to share them.
