The final piece caught the judge’s eye not only for the vibrancy and beauty of the painting but for the collective way in which the home worked with local pre-school children and members of the community to develop the beautiful creative art piece.
The judges commented on what particularly impressed them: ‘It shows a great example of the way that connecting with the community can bring life and vigour into a care setting’
