My name is lucy Tushingham I am interior design and fine arts, graduate.
I live in Norwich and my business aims to provide arts and crafts workshops to residents at care homes and children in after school clubs.
The money will be used for materials for all kinds of fun and therapeutic projects.
to be able to keep the actual cost of the workshop low as many care homes and schools don't have big budgets for the arts.
I believe art in these environments is very important.
It helps residents to engage with others, it helps with people with complex needs especially those struggling with motor skills.
I remember when my own grandfather was in a care home and it saddened me that the residents there had very few activities or stimulation to look forward to.
