CARE home residents created climate change themed art as part of a nationwide ‘big draw’.

Residents from Witney’s Millers Grange even teamed up virtually with local nursery St Hugh of Lincoln Nursery School to take part in The Big Draw Festival.

A series of paintings, drawings and collages were created, with the final pieces showcased in one of the care home’s front windows.

Alison Parry, home manager at Care UK’s Millers Grange, said: “The Big Draw was a huge success, and we were delighted to be able to partner with St Hugh of Lincoln Nursery School for this year’s celebrations.

“Although current circumstances mean we were unable to welcome members of the community into Millers Grange, we wanted to connect with the local nursery school virtually to take part in the festival this year and do something positive, and The Big Draw offered the perfect chance for us to do just that.

“Residents loved getting creative, so we’re really thrilled to be showcasing the result of our work for the people of Witney to see.”

Launched in 2000, The Big Draw is a charity dedicated to raising the profile of drawing as a tool for wellbeing, creativity, and social and cultural engagement.

Its annual festival sees over 500,000 people participate each year.

The festival has even broken two world records – for the longest drawing in the world (one kilometre) and the greatest number of people drawing simultaneously (over 7,000).
