From the 25th - 29th of September, the care homes under The Fremantle Trust recently showcased their creative talents through art and poetry in celebration of NAPA Arts Day. The beautiful artworks and heartfelt poems were not only displayed but also compiled into a captivating book titled “Reflections 2023.”
In a bid to share the artistic and literary endeavours of the residents with the broader community, invitations were extended to local church congregations and community members. This event served as an opportunity for people from the area to appreciate the artistic expressions of the residents.
Evelyn, a resident of Lewin House, marvelled at the displayed creations, stating, “They’re all very good.”
