The service, which works closely with Kirkwood Hospice, was set up to support people with life-limiting illnesses and their carers.

Creative artist Catherine Hill, who works with individual patients and groups, said: “The creative process is proving to be extremely beneficial for those with anxiety, breathlessness, low mood and low self-esteem. Patients at the centre are able to express their individual needs and concerns through their art and enjoy an interesting and stimulating experience.”

The exhibition is in the Upper Hall at Dewsbury Minster, Rishworth Road, Dewsbury, on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday, 9am-3pm.
