Wonderful Donation...

hArt has recently taken delivery of a fantastic collection of art materials. These were donated by the husband of the late Sarah Ray, who was a keen art enthusiast, with a particular skill and love for scrapbooking.

The donation was delivered by some of Sarah's scrapbooking friends, who wanted her wonderful tools and materials to go to good use.

A donation like this means so much. The art therapists, facilitators, volunteers and hArt's clients are most apreciative of this donation.

From them and all of us at hArt, thank you Sarah and your 'Scrapbooking friends'.
