Fancy supporting a good cause? START is a Salford based charity that uses creativity to engage with those with mental health issues in the North West. To celebrate their 21st birthday, a couple of young entrepreneurs have set up a fundraising exhibition to promote their organisation and commemorate over two decades of valuable work. You can also explore some of the collection online (and pictured). The exhibition will showcase the work of START artists, alongside musical talent Flinch and the Moon and a supporting raffle of local artists work including Anthony Taylor, Barbara Sykes and Steve Garside.
