Make a date with the Good Shepherd for 2024!
Our calendar is back!
After the huge success of last year’s calendar to mark the 50th anniversary of the Brothers first starting to help people in Wolverhampton, we have produced another highlighting the fantastic artwork and photography of our service users and lived experience volunteers.
Art and photography is one of the meaningful activities run at the Good Shepherd to help people feel valued and improve their self-esteem, and all funds raised from the sales of the calendars will be re-invested into the programme for next year.
“The weekly art group is just part of the meaningful activity programme which delivers activities ranging from boxing to fishing, and cooking to counselling,” says Kate Penman, Community Engagement Worker with the Good Shepherd.
“For those people who experience life on the margins of society, inclusion is important but a sense of belonging even more so.
“The group work and the art has helped create a sense of belonging and purpose for all who attend.
“Seeing their artwork both exhibited, and in the calendar, validates their commitment and hard work within the groups and they have been to ‘give back’ by fundraising for the Good Shepherd with this year’s calendar.”
The calendars cost £5 and are available via cash or card payment from the Good Shepherd at 65 Waterloo Road.
