A PROJECT that works with young people to improve mental health is set to benefit from a share of a £2 million lottery grant.
Penryn-based Sea Sanctuary is a marine-based charity that provides health and wellbeing education onboard large classic yachts.
It recently received a Big Lottery Fund grant of £446,887, which will enable it to continue its work and to deliver longer-term support.
Joseph Sabien, chief executive officer at the charity, said: "On behalf of Sea Sanctuary and our client-sailors, I would like to extend our sincere gratitude for this award.
"We can now move into rehabilitation, no longer having to rely on shorter interventions and can support people over a longer period of time; this is fantastic news."
The Big Lottery Fund issues grants to health, education, environment and charitable causes across the UK.
