On Saturday the 24th of March SAGE Greenfingers organised a fundraising writing event for people who wanted to write but never had a chance to demonstrate their skills.
You could really see the room full of drumming rhythms of spoken words. Blank sheets were turned by the linking of ink into stories and poems.
Attendees participated for 7 hours at the Welcome Centre on Nottingham to raise money for the horticultural therapy service, which had to be cut in January from four to one session per week.
The gardening sessions provided healthy outdoor activity and laughter for those who are experiencing mental health problem.
Song writer Sally Goldsmith and Sheffield well known poet River Wolton were impressed by the total of 26 inspiring writers, who attended to support the charity during this difficult economic time.
There were also some poems to take home, as well as muffins and tea.
This poem was created by the group using random words:
