A Reason to Get Up gets crafty at Always the Sun Festival

Last month Crafty Creations young people from the A Reason to Get Up programme had the opportunity to hold their own mask-making workshop at Always the Sun Festival.

Crafty Creations has spaces available for new young people to join regularly. If you are interested in this fun and rewarding daytime activity please contact Aisha (Aisha.a@halowproject.org.uk) for details.
