Members of the Black Dog Music Project, which uses music to help people deal with mental health difficulties or disabilities, put on an open-air gig to showcase their talents.

The group last year received £1,000 of Community Cash funding, one of 55 groups to do so through the Norwich Evening News, and used the money to hire a professional music tutor and hire extra rehearsal space.

Applications for this year’s £50,000 Community Cash fund close on Tuesday.

Black Dog chairman Michael Mainwaring, a member for a year, said: “Music is a common language, and it can change your mood and your emotions. The group has changed my life completely.”

Community Cash grants of £500 to £1,000 are on offer for sports clubs, children’s groups, older people’s clubs, theatre companies or charities – so make sure you don’t miss out.
