“I just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful creativity packs that you very kindly posted to me during the lockdown period.
I’m really grateful to you, they were so carefully thought out, with easy and fun instructions. I’ve actually sent the cards with dried flowers to friends who had birthdays during the lockdown, as I was unable to go out and buy birthday cards.”
This project was started to support older adults who had previously attended a local Wychavon arts group. From April to July 2020 the pilot project supported 19 older adults, in total 114 packages were sent out across the district. The parcels which have already been sent out contained crafts such as pressed flower card making, lavender bags, bunting, felting, and growing strawberry seeds.
This project is currently running in the Wychavon District only but is hoping to expand so please keep checking back for updated information or contact us.
