Our Girls Arrive at Graham & Brown for some creative fun!
In November last year a group of Big and Little Sisters from our programme at Blackburn Central High School were treated to an interactive creative workshop hosted by our key sponsors Graham & Brown, internationally acclaimed manufacturers of wallpaper, wall art and paint.

I am also sure several home refurb projects were started as a result!
