Alnwick’s Deputy Mayor, Councillor Julia Lyford (centre), attended an International Women’s Day reception at Mind and Sole, Alnwick.
The group was founded by Christine Smith and offers support to people suffering from or caring for those affected by mental health issues.
Julia commented “Visiting this group on International Women’s Day was a very positive experience. Chris and her colleagues do fantastic work and hearing about the support they have offered other women was inspirational. Together we crossed arms which was symbolic of this year’s theme – #breakthebias.”
