Charity Calendar celebrates client creativity

12 December 2012

To celebrate our 40th birthday year, Transform Housing & Support held an art competition for the people we support. All of the artwork produced by our clients, including the 15 winning entries, has been included in our 2013 calendar.

Each person that entered the competition has faced issues such as homelessness, learning disabilities, mental health issues, drug and alcohol dependence and sensory or physical disabilities. This calendar celebrates the creativity of our clients, which is often hidden away, and their achievements in overcoming the issues they face.

One client who took part in the competition said:

“I feel flattered and humbled to win second place in the art competition due to the high standard of the entries. It has really lifted my mood. The calendars are lovely and I am really impressed by how hard people must have worked on their entries. Well done Transform and Happy 40th Birthday!”

We are very grateful to ExxonMobil who generously sponsored the design and production of the calendar.

All of the artwork can be seen in our 2013 calendars which are available now at £6.50 each. There were a high number of entries; we had needlework, poetry, paintings, drawings and even a piece of jewellery. The work was of excellent quality, and Transform is very proud of the achievements of the clients involved.
