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. The girls and mentors met some of the staff, had a tour of the site and got to create their own wallpaper design in the fabulous on site studios and a great time was had by all. I am also sure several home refurb projects were started as a result!
