Service users celebrate Lime Walk ‘Recovery Festival’

21 July 2017

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

The unit, run by Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP), hosted its third annual festival to allow service users to display and auction their artwork as part of fundraising for the Trust’s charity.

The popular event also featured live music, a BBQ, cake sale, raffle and a host of carnival games.

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.

Lime Walk House Unit Manager Nargus Yasin said: “Events like today are fantastic because they bring staff, service users, friends and family together.

“I’d like to thank our service users for putting on a great event, and also friends and family who have come to find out more about the work we do here. 

Lime Walk Recovery Festival 2017 raised £540 in total through donations from service user’s friends and families. Lime Walk patients have chosen to donate this money to The Christie Charitable Fund, East Cheshire Hospice and Alder Hey Children’s Charity.
