Darwin Court Canvas Donation

Darwin Court receives a work of art

Darwin Court was delighted to receive a generous donation of a beautifully painted canvas from Queens Croft High School student Hollie. The home shares a special bond with the school as the very talented Hollie, along with her classmates, regularly visited Darwin Court pre-pandemic to deliver activities to their residents.

During the midst of the pandemic, Hollie spent time creating amazing artwork, which she discovered had a great impact on her mental health and was very therapeutic during such a challenging time. The canvas Hollie has painted for the home depicts an underwater scene with dolphins, a turtle, an octopus and colourful corals with various fish and a seahorse. The canvas was gratefully received by staff and residents and is now displayed in their main Bistro reception area for all to enjoy and admire.

Thank you, Hollie, for this fantastic gift. You have such a wonderful talent!
