There has been lots of festive creativity taking place at a young people’s support charity in Derbyshire this Christmas season.
Callum’s Voice, which is situated within Alfreton House, hosts regular crafts sessions for young people to enjoy.
Their latest creative session involved making a multitude of items – including a special Christmas wreath.
Founded in memory of Callum who was tragically lost to suicide at just at 18 in April 2019, Callum’s Voice was originally a Community Interest Company (CIC) and then became a fully registered charity in February 2020.
A charity spokesman explained the mission of the charity: “To enable children and young people with Autism and mental health conditions to lead happy, healthy, fulfilling lives by: Improving public understanding of Autism and mental health conditions; Empowering children and young people with Autism and mental health conditions to build on their strengths to achieve their potential; Promoting good mental health for children, young people and families.”
The spokesman for Callum’s Voice said of their latest creative session: “We had a lovely creative session at this week’s ‘Time out Tuesday’ drop in session. Some beautiful, creative artwork from those who attended the session.
“We also added some finishing touches to Callum’s beautiful, handmade, natural wreath which has now been placed on Callum’s grave, thank you for everyone’s help with finishing this.”
