The East Boro Arts & Crafts Group in Weymouth had yet another successful Open Day on Thursday 23rd November 2016. The group offers arts, crafts and activities to local adults with disabilities.
They raised £100 for the Mayors' Charity and £111.50 for Weymouth and Portland Dementia Action Alliance. The Mayor attended and was really impressed with the work the group has produced. Infact he was so impressed that he has commissioned a painting by Sarah Boydell, one of the artists in the group. When the artwork is completed she and her family will have a presentation in the Mayors' Chambers.
This year, the group painted a festive backdrop for a photo booth which proved very popular on the day. Local Photographer Chris Warran kindly gave his time to the cause. http://www.warranphotography.com/
