A MENTAL health charity in Corby will create a garden oasis with funds raised by a musical group’s concert.

The Strung Out Sisters performed one of its three charity concerts last year in Market Harborough in aid of Corby Mind and raised £600.

The funds have recently been presented and the charity has started planning how it will spend the funds to improve the garden for its users.

Iris Tinto, mental health worker for the charity, and Stephen Mitchell, the chairman of its board, helped deliver a presentation on suicide to the audience.

Mrs Tinto said: “It was themed around having conversations that matter and those conversations that can save lives.

“It aimed to reduce the stigma or perceived stigma around suicide.”
