As many of our supporters know, here at The Donna Louise Art Therapy is a massive part of our counselling services and many of our children and their relatives find that painting can often be a great way to express their feeling and emotions.
Much of the original artwork is displayed at an annual art exhibition at the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in Hanley, displayed around the hospice and even sold at auction to raise funds to continue these essential services.
We are thrilled to announce that for a three-month period, reproductions of many of these originals will be on display at Leek United's Derby Street Branch in Leek, to help raise awareness of the hospice's work. So if you get the chance pop into the store and take a look.
Chris Belyavin, Relationship Manager at The Donna Louise, said: "Art therapy is a key part of the work we do, with the aim of getting children and their families to open up, talk and express themselves. There is a story attached to every single picture; some are extremely moving, and they all range from tear-jerking to the simplest of emotions."
To date, Leek United has raised a total of more than £8,500 for The Donna Louise Children's Hospice, and we are proud to continue this amazing relationship with the Leek united team.
