Borderland Voices a charity promoting Health and Well-being through the Arts



Orchestral concert in aid of BV on
14th March at the Methodist Church Buxton raised £280. We thank the High Peak Orchestra for their kind support.




Borderland Voices was founded in 1998 in Leek, Staffordshire and currently works across the Staffordshire Moorlands. Our aim is to promote mental health through the arts and to raise public awareness and understanding of mental health issues by delivering accessible arts projects and offering creative space for self-expression within a mutually supportive community.





To write what
I did not know I need to say.
To hear, to read,
to keep mad dogs at bay.

Freedom to listen unbiased
by cold chandler's
false indoctrination's wax.

Alive. Alight. Not lax.

Freedom to breathe out again
expel past pain
and smile, and live again.




If it snows, ring about 10am to check Andy has arrived

Waitrose charity donations raised £237 for BV during October. They will present the cheque this month.
