---------------------------------------------

The work of several of our Medical Fellows in College is related to the activities of the charities. The charities have Local Centres which run art therapy sessions for clients.

Over 20 local artists, many from Cambridge Drawing Society, have donated artwork for sale. There will be a sealed bid auction of artworks donated by local artists. Bids accepted 10 -4 but closing at 12.00 Monday 28th.

Some 50 artworks have been created by CCHC clients and the same in terms of prints and other works by Headway clients. These will be for sale.

All proceeds to the two charities.

Headway Cambridgeshire provides services for people with an acquired brain injury and support for their families and carers. The rehabilitation hubs provide clients with places to work, learn, explore, enjoy and recover. In creative art sessions, individuals can develop their cognitive and motor skills which helps to rebuild a sense of self, reduce anxiety and increase confidence.

Cambridge Cancer Help Centre offers support to anyone with cancer together with their families, carers and friends.  The atmosphere is friendly and informal; everyone is welcome to benefit from the courses, therapies and activities – including the mutually supportive art group.
