PEOPLE living with long-term health conditions who are struggling with loneliness and isolation are receiving a helping hand from the Beacon Arts Centre.

The team at the Beacon have linked up with the Southbank Centre in London for the Art by Post project.

The programme sends creative activity booklets out to people every month and encourages them to share their artwork.

Work shared as part of the project will form an exhibition at the Southbank Centre in 2021.

To get involved, send your name, address and telephone number to before November 8.
