On 21st June Freeman of the borough Noddy Holder, the former frontman of the world famous band Slade, was guest of honour at the shop opening of the new Queen’s Award winner, Mindful Gifts, in Darlaston.
Many fans old and new alike flocked to get a glimpse of Noddy, as he took his time to check out the new facilities at Mindful Gifts. The project now has a dedicated café area in the new shop which means they can support more people with Dementia. All the volunteers in the shop have some of sort of mental health condition and working in the shop helps them to cope. In fact the shop improves their lifestyle as their minds are stimulated through its 1940’s/1950’s decor and regular customer contact.
For more details about Mindful Gifts, feel free to call Vicki Phipps at the shop on 01922 495994.
