PEOPLE moving into their own home for the first time have received a helping hand thanks to a week-long course on cooking healthily, money management and DIY at the Blend project in Ripley.

The workshops for ten students were run by Amber Valley Housing’s Homeless Team with volunteers from Blend and Broxtowe Youth Homeless Group, as well as a session designed by life coach Andy Whittaker.

Supplies were donated by local businesses to give people on the course a chance to gain some practical experience, said a spokesman.
