Willow Tree Group Alive and Kicking Blackmore Vale 5/12/14
Just to let people know that the Willow Tree Group mental health support group at Castleman Bungalow Blandford, once financed by Dorset County Council, is still alive and kicking.

We have been on a campaign of raising the money to keep the group running and have been supported by many companies and at least one famous artist, a lot of work is involved and we have been and will run sales (Blandford Hospital and Corn Exchange) also running raffles to help. We have our own website where people can follow our efforts and donate via PayPal - if they are interested the site is

We still meet every Wednesday at the bungalow and intend to keep going as long as we can. The famous artist Grayson Perry has kindly donated an original pen sketch which will be auctioned for us by April. We are very proud of this and hope it might inspire people to donate to us.

We thank every donator listed on the site for their support.
