Croston House receives a grant from Wyre Council
Croston House recently received a grant from Wyre Council in support of the psychological wellbeing of cancer patients. The project will have three parts to it, a Mindfulness Course, which is proven to be of huge benefit to cancer patients, a bereavement group which will help, amongst others, support those who are feeling lonely and isolated in the community due to loss of a loved one. The third aspect is to provide transport to Croston House as we cover quite a rural area.
This grant is quite timely as news headlines highlight the problems faced by many cancer patients; ‘Large numbers of cancer patients suffer from major depression and in the vast majority of cases their mental anguish is being overlooked or ignored, a study has found’. We already address these issues here at Croston House and at the Charity as a whole. This new funding will enable us to do even more.
