CanvasRus is delighted to have been involved with Noel’s HQ last Sunday donating a selection of canvas prints from the Kids Gallery
. See left for the ABC multiple tiled canvas wall. Noel’s HQ
is a genuinely heart warming series, presented by Noel Edmonds, offering random acts of kindness to individuals and communities who help and support others so selflessly.
Woodlands Nursery, for children aged 0 to 5 with special needs, have new premises and were struggling to open ready for the new term due to ridiculous amounts of red tape. There was also a great need for volunteers to help landscape and redecorate what was an old doctors’ surgery.
Two members of the CanvasRus team happily gave up last Sunday afternoon and evening to help hang the thirteen pieces of artwork, paint walls and generally muck in with the makeover. Presented live by Konnie Huq, of Blue Peter fame, four rooms were completely transformed into a sensory room, an art room, a development room and a bathroom. There were numerous suppliers, both local and national donating everything from toys to flooring. Even Rolf Harris
generously contributed his time and artistic skills in creating a beautiful mural for the art room.
Amazingly the makeover managed to stay a complete surprise for parents, staff and children. We’d like to wish the nursery every success and the children and families years of enjoyment.
