Cumbria charities and trust open £50,000 health hub

A new £50,000 health hub has been opened in Cumbria.

The Gateway Centre at Gillingate in Kendal, was built after receiving £50,000 of funding from Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

The centre brings together five local charities and the trust under one roof to offer health advice to residents.

Lord Lieutenant Claire Hensman, who opened the centre, said it was a "wonderful opportunity" for the community to "work together".

The centre is one of 16 projects in the county that has shared £500,000 worth of funding from the trust.
