Keen crafters in Norwich can take part in a Crafternoon this month to raise money for the charity Mind.

Hobbycraft will be running the afternoon of creative fun on Saturday, September 23 from 11am to 3pm.

Customers are invited to meet with friends and family at the Norwich store in Riverside Retail Park, where for a £3 donation they will have crafting templates, guidance and materials provided by Hobbycraft for the fun workshop.

The donations will go to Mind. Mind is the leading mental health charity in England and Wales, providing support to make sure that no one has to face a mental health problem alone.

Dan Mortimer, store manager at Hobbycraft Norwich, said: 'Mind is a fantastic cause, and we hope that the fundraising and awareness for the charity through our Crafternoon will help to make a difference to many lives.'
