House Portraits

Friday 15 November 2019

I'm delighted to announce this free activity that will be running throughout the duration of the Pop Up Shop. Stop off at the Winter Gardens Pop Up Shop between 2nd-8th December to make a card and send a festive wish to a friend you’ve never met. 

It warmed my heart to read about The Better Together Project - a project aiming to alleviate isolation and loneliness in Sheffield. They organise a big Christmas party for lots of elderly people who may be spending the festive season alone... and you, me and everyone who stops by can make a card and write a message for one of those people. 

‘For the last 3 years, The Better Together Project has hosted a christmas party for many elderly people in Sheffield, who may otherwise be spending the festive season alone. Each event has been incredibly successful, as a result of overwhelming support from the local community. One lady told us that we had transported her back to the best days of her life...what more could you ask for than that?’
