A NEW project will run from Wallace House Community Centre in Evesham every Thursday for 10 weeks.

The project starts on Thursday October 5, running from 7pm until 8.30pm and is for people interested in losing weight but lack the confidence or self-esteem to do so.

The project is an arts one and the first session will be creative writing and the visual arts.

The group will then choose what art form they want to continue with.

Jenny Davis, arts development officer at Wychavon said: “It’s brilliant that we are running this ground breaking project where art is being used to help boost people’s confidence. I’m excited to see it get going in Evesham.”

Research studies show how the arts can be a tool to improve well being.
