Devizes Town Council has agreed to give a grant of £100 to Wiltshire Mind.

The council’s community and civic resources committee agreed a number of community grants in November but MIND was not one of the recipients despite making an application.

At the request of town councillor Ian Hopkins the matter was discussed again on Tuesday and his recommendation to give £100 was agreed.

Coun Hopkins said: “As mental health is the Cinderella service of the NHS and Wiltshire MIND does a great deal of work, including in Devizes, and is always strapped for cash I think we should support them.”
