Make It Better spread joy amongst the community

A team of health arts professionals from Make It Better have been preparing weekly activity packs to send out to frontline organisations supporting vulnerable isolated people in Cornwall.

The packs include all the materials you'd need to create something from home. This could be anything from a sock bunny to paintings or spinning tops.

With help from the National Lottery, Cornwall Community Foundation and FEAST Cornwall, the team have already distributed more than 96 packs a week, with the demand still growing.

The organisations that have been partnered up with Make It Better are CPR Foodbank, Chy Winder Homeless service, St Euny Church, Miners court extra care scheme, Heartlands intergenerational project, Penlee family project and Carn Brea Foyer.

"We have been inundated with support from the public and are so grateful to be able to aid those in isolation through the arts! We hope to continue spreading our Mitber magic through the community."

Nico aged 5 from Penryn says ‘The packs are a good idea and really fun'.

You can also access online pages to download and take part by what would normally cost an annual fee, find it here.

Make It Better are also looking for people willing to donate to help keep the project going. You can find out more information and donate here.
