Come join us at our HOPE Exhibition – 23rd & 24th June 2023
Over the past few months, The HOPE Project, funded by Surrey County Council has provided a variety of workshops and activities, these include creating crocheted butterflies to share messages of HOPE across the county and online. We also facilitated guided walks around Surrey by a local historian and Shifa’s Asian women’s group visited Southall. All these activities positively impacted the emotional and mental wellbeing of those that took part; embedding mental health promotion and building communities and connectedness.
It’s not too late to get involved and get your message of HOPE displayed at our exhibition. Either by finding one of our crocheted butterflies, scanning the QR code then leaving a message of ‘HOPE’ on our digital noticeboard. Or, if you don’t find a butterfly, you can visit our Butterflies for HOPE page to create a message of ‘HOPE’ HERE.
You can also help raise awareness on social media by taking a photo of the butterfly, uploading it to Facebook / Instagram and using the hashtag #butterflies4hopesurrey.
To raise awareness of The HOPE Project, we are holding an exhibition at Zero, in Guildford. The exhibits will be a of mixture butterflies crocheted by clients, messages of HOPE, pictures and testimonials from our clients who have taken part.
