WELLBEING for residents at a Muir supported living scheme is being boosted by a £1,000 funding donation from Europe’s largest independent car dealer.
Arnold Clark made the donation to help drive wellbeing initiatives for residents at Muir’s Cornwall House scheme in Chester.
The funding, from the Arnold Clarke Community Fund, will go towards an improved outdoor space for scheme residents – giving them more opportunity to learn more skills and enjoy upcycling furniture and plant flowers and vegetables outdoors.
“It’s incredibly important for our residents to access new experiences and build confidence and skills to enhance wellbeing,” said Becky Smith, Muir Project Officer at Cornwall House, which provides self-contained accommodation for people with an enduring mental health condition.
“We’re delighted to receive the funding from Arnold Clarke and very grateful for their interest in our wellbeing initiatives at Cornwall House.”
Cornwall House residents had unveiled a new indoor ‘Wellbeing Room’ in 2021 as residents created a colourful new space during COVID-19 lockdowns, supported by funding from Redrow Homes.
Now, Arnold Clark’s donation will ensure they have more wellbeing space outdoors too – providing a greater range of wellbeing opportunities for all residents enjoying life at the scheme.
An Arnold Clark spokesperson added: “We’re very happy we could contribute to the project.”
