Rusty Road 2 Recovery is a service for people of all ages struggling with their mental health. Based in Bridgwater, the group works with iconic British classic vehicles, restoring them to their former glory and along the way, encouraging participants to take pride in themselves and their achievements. Alongside the work to British classics, they also run art therapy sessions, which focus on communication and supporting one another. One of the group’s main aims is to provide a support network for participants.
Vince Davis, Director at Rusty Road 2 Recovery, said: “With the help and support from Somerset Community Foundation, the Hinkley Point C Community Fund grant we’ve been awarded has meant that we can deliver a better and more rewarding service to the people of Sedgemoor – with an immediate effect.”
“The money from the grant is being used to better equip our metalworking workshop, enabling us to teach new skills and trades. This will help our users gain a better, more satisfying and fulfilling life, and also help them back into work.”
