Breakfast was served with a twist at a Rasen mental health group’s meeting last week, as Tesco supplied them with their most important meal - on the house.

Healthy Minds, a mental health support group in Market Rasen, enjoyed their usual monthly breakfast meeting with the added bonus of support from Tesco, who supplied the group with breakfast treats.

Project Assistant Clive Culverhouse said: “One of the ideas we had to make meetings a bit more interactive for people was to have a breakfast club.

“The monthly breakfast meeting has been running since before Christmas last year.

Tesco’s Community Champion Jenny Stimson said: “Another project assistant, Sarah, wrote to me to ask if we would we be interested in funding a breakfast club which met at the beginning of each month.

“So I said, ‘Yes! What would you like?

“I am an ambassador for Tesco, so I go out and work with all sorts of different groups - and Healthy Minds is one of them.

Mr Culverhouse hopes that support from Tesco in the breakfast club will help drum up numbers in the group and encourage more people to seek out Healthy Minds.

He said: “If people want to get involved - just come along.

“It would be wonderful to see more people at meetings and hopefully expand to run a meeting on a Saturday so more people can attend.

“We do all sorts of activities like crafts, film screenings and quizzes, and we’re currently planning a day trip for the group.

“Healthy Minds provides a safe space for people from all walks of life to come, catch up and socialise.

“I think people can be put off by thinking that all we talk about is our problems - but it’s often the very last thing we talk about!

“It’s a very welcoming envirnoment where newcomers are made to feel at home.”

Healthy Minds is overseen by CLIP and has meetings every Wednesday morning from 9.30am.
