Recovery Festival celebrates mental health work

09 August 2016

Patients at Lime Walk House in Macclesfield have shared their work with friends and family as part of the unit's Recovery Festival.

The festival, run by Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP), featured live music, a BBQ, cake sale and raffle. Patients also displayed arts and crafts and hosted carnival stalls in the Macclesfield sunshine.

More than 50 people joined service users and staff at Lime Walk House, which offers assessment, rehabilitation and therapies for mental health patients from across Cheshire.

Andy White, from Crewe, has been a service user at Lime Walk House for more than two years. He said: “Events like today are fantastic because they bring staff, service users, friends and family together.

“I’d like to thank the staff here for putting on a great event, and also friends and family who have come to find out more about the work we do here. The money raised today is all for a good cause as it goes back into services used by local people.”

Lime Walk Recovery Festival 2016 raised £440 for CWP Charity, which invests money in mental health and learning disability services across Cheshire and Wirral. To find out more about CWP Charity, or to make a donation, please click here.
