Free art sessions brighten up summer

27th September 2022

  • We teamed up with local arts charity Ignite Imaginations to run free art workshops for children with additional needs during the summer holidays.

    The weekly sessions at Sharrow Community Forum were funded by a grant from BBC Children in Need. They were aimed at disabled children aged 7-11 years, but siblings were also welcome – as were older kids who enjoy ‘younger’ activities.

    Mel Frith, who attended the sessions with her two children Madi and Albert, said: “If it wasn’t for the art sessions and my daughter’s weekly SNIPS club provided by the council, we wouldn’t have gone anywhere all summer. There was nothing else available that my children could access.”
