During the national lockdowns in 2020 and 2021, Eastbourne Borough Council, Eastbourne Food Bank and Community Stuff provided a lifeline to vulnerable households, ensuring that help was delivered to those most in need.
Towner Eastbourne meanwhile, joined forces with these groups and provided creative kit bags – filled with sketchbooks, drawing equipment and brightly coloured pencils.
The recyclable paper bags also included ideas for relaxation and inspiration to encourage everyone to get creative at home - and help make life just a little bit better during the difficult times we live through.
They also included a pre-stamped postcard which recipients can send back to Towner to keep in touch and to share what they have made using the kits.
The bags were specially designed by friend of Towner, Fraser Muggeridge Studios, in Towner’s trademark cobalt blue, also synonymous for so many with the NHS.
Further projects then took place in 2020 in collaboration with South Downs National Parks and 3VA, which resulted in our Making Sense series of activity sheets.
