Delyn MP David Hanson has presented a lottery cheque for £3,300 to Flintshire based writing group the ‘Pinboard Writers’.
The group was put together after a number of people completed a creative writing course and wanted a platform to continue their writing.
The funding will go primarily towards publishing two booklets; one of which we be made up of a collection of poems and prose, the other will contain reminiscences.
The group is now looking to expand its membership, distribute its booklets throughout the local community and go into the local primary schools to promote reading.
David Hanson said:
“I am pleased to be able to present this cheque to the ‘Pinboard Writers’. The group wanted to continue writing after attending a course and the fact that the funding will go towards publishing booklets, which will be distributed to schools and libraries, is a tremendous achievement.
“I wish the group well as it looks to go from strength to strength over the coming months.”
