About this cause
Ashton, Wigan & District YMCA operates a day nursery and a breakfast, after school and holiday club for four local primary schools. We offer very affordable prices ensuring the local parents and children can benefit from a fantastic Early Years programme. We deliver community activities: Over 65’s Diamond lunch group, Dementia friendly group, Breast Cancer Group, Sit B Fit, Job Seekers sessions, IT club and Mental Health group. Our Mental Health group will be facilitated by a Photography graduate and volunteers. Photowalks & Wellbeing offers the chance to meet with like-minded people, reduce social isolation and learn creative approaches to Photography.
How this cause brings people in the community together
This group aims to improve people’s wellbeing via a Photowalks approach. Arts for Health activities have been shown to raise people’s quality of life. The group will get the chance to enjoy photography workshops in a supportive and friendly environment. Your help will ensure we can buy cameras and also go on trips out to enjoy local landmarks and take eye-catching pictures.
