Over the last few months one of our fantastic supporters, Siobhan, has been making and selling her ‘Circles of Hope’ artwork to raise money for mental health support!
Siobhan has made some truly beautiful pieces and managed to raise an incredible £5,000 for the charity!
£5,000 could fund our information line for 25 days, which signposts over 9000 people to help & support per year.
Or £5,000 could fund 200 option session appointments with one of our wellbeing workers, providing a safe space for someone to talk about their mental health and the support options available to them.
Siobhan said: “During lockdown I started cutting up my sketch books to create collages, feeling anxious with what was going on around, no one ever really sees my sketches, I saw the cut outs as circles from my mind! I created new artworks from them, entitling them Circles of Hope, and sold them to raise money for Oxfordshire Mind”
Siobhan is still creating her fantastic ‘Circles of Hope’ pieces, along with lots of other colourful artwork, and will kindly be donating 10% of all art sold to Oxfordshire Mind.
A very big thank you to Siobhan for her fundraising and hard work in making these beautiful pieces of art, we really appreciate your ongoing support and generosity!
