Ivor and Peter , who use SLSW services, have found a hidden talent during lockdown and will now raise money for the NHS.
They, along with Carol, who is the sister of SLSW Carer Rachel Bunce have discovered a love and passion for painting.
They have created some fantastic pieces of art, which they now hope to sell to raise money for the NHS and Covid-19 appeal.
After lockdown Ivor would like to exhibit his work.
Here is a write up by Harriet, who is a support carer for SLSW Carers Rachel and Fran Bunce:
“I’m incredibly proud to introduce the work of Carol, Ivor and Peter.
“My mum Rachel and step dad Fran are carers to these three adults who live with them. Peter and Ivor live with them through the Shared Lives Scheme. Carol is my Mum’s amazing sister who usually lives independently but spends much time at the Blue House (Rachel and Fran’s home) and has moved in for lock down.
“My Mum- Anyone that has encountered my mum will have experienced her incredible enthusiasm and encouragement, it’s like a fuel. She gets such genuine excitement about people doing anything creative and her encouragement with these three individuals throughout lockdown has lead to something really special. It is a pleasure to be sent photos like these on a daily basis they show the gang clearly growing in creative confidence.
“Their beautiful paintings and drawings are spreading joy to people all over the world online.
“Already, people are wanting to purchase prints of their art which I am now working on making a possibility, watch this space! All profits from print sales will be donated to the NHS Charities Together, Covid-19 appeal.
“Drawing is for everyone! Its not something you can or can’t do, its a process to be played with! Get involved with our drawing fundraiser here:
