NEWARTHILL’S Reeltime Music has received a cash boost from the ‘see me’ Local Grants Scheme 2011.

The organisation received £1,208 from ‘see me’, which is Scotland’s national campaign to end stigma and discrimination around mental ill-health.

Reeltime Music was awarded the funding to provide an exciting, innovative and creative work placement programme based around the theme of mental ill-health.

The placement will give young people with experience of mental illness an opportunity to produce a piece of creative work about what they have experienced.

It will also offer hands-on experience of working within the creative industries.
