Disability Advice Project attended a wellbeing event at the Congress Theatre, in Cwmbran, on 10 October in celebration of World Mental Health Day. More than 30 organisations provided advice and support as part of the Bringing the Community Together event.

Strike A Chord Cymru Choir sang a beautiful range of uplifting songs. The choir is made up of people affected by stroke and was brought together by the Stroke Association and Head for Arts.

There were plenty of wellbeing activities including free stress relieving massages and clay decoration making.
