Falmouth Court care home recently presented Grays Wharf Arts CIC in Penryn with a cheque for £500 towards materials and equipment. The money is to support this Community Interest Company with the creative arts groups they run.
The grant had been awarded by Barchester's Charitable Foundation, a charity that helps older people and adults with a disability or mental health problems across England, Scotland, and Wales by offering grants to help people connect or reconnect with others in their local community.
The care home's General Manager, Haley Reeve-Larson, and Home Services Advisor, Hugh Dickinson were welcomed to the afternoon session held for over 65's to present the cheque and celebrate being awarded the grant. They took along some delicious cakes baked by the home's Head Chef, Jon Moyle, and some goodie bags for all to enjoy.
Megan Beck, Director of Grays Wharf, said "The generous grant from Barchester has enabled us to buy art supplies for our creative social groups, supporting us to keep them going. Our members often comment on how great it is to have access to a wide range of drawing and painting materials, inspiring them to have a go and be proud of what they create"
Haley Reeve-Larson, General Manager at Falmouth Court, said: "We are always keen to show as much support as we can to local charities. It was so lovely to see first-hand the wonderful group in action and their fantastic works to date."
