Praxis Care Service Users have been working hard over the past six weeks in the Castle Lane Arts & Crafts Group to make their fabulous pom pom boards.
The group purchased wool and equipment from local Lurgan shops; The Yarn Barn and The Wool Box. Both shops were so impressed with the finished boards that they would like to display the work in their shop windows.
The Arts & Crafts Group was run by Praxis Care volunteer, Helen Bell, who came to Castle Lane every Monday night to spend time with the tenants. Helen did a great job getting some service users who would not normally participate in group activities involved and everyone was very enthusiastic and looked forward to Helen arriving each week. Helen had a positive approach to the each Service User’s individual needs and encouraged each individual to have confidence in their work in a relaxed atmosphere.
On completion of the pom pom board project the group were keen to know what project they will be completing next and when it will start.
Great work everyone!
