Suffolk Like Minds receive ‘Good Deed’ from arc shopping centre.
Suffolk Like Minds have been announced as the second recipients of arc shopping centres ’10 Good Deeds”
Founded in 2014, Suffolk Like Minds are a peer support and friendship group based in Bury St Edmunds which is open to anyone who has difficulties with their mental health.
Abbie Panks, arc centre manager said "The Suffolk Like Minds group has benefitted many people in the community and we want to support them and the nurturing nature of their work. We will be providing them with vouchers to cover the costs of their social activities over the months ahead”
The group meets each week in a safe and informal space at Suffolk Mind Building as well as organising excursions, coffee meets and activities.
Sarah Dovell from Suffolk Like Minds said “The group is very pleased to be awarded in the 10 Good Deeds initiative. The vouchers will allow us to increase the number of social activities we do outside group time. We are hoping that it will help us get some new people who would like to come to Like Minds.
