Rachel, who lives in our Alan Shearer Specialist Residential home, has just completed one of her biggest craft projects to date.

With the help and support of our staff, Rachel has transformed an unloved coffee table into a bespoke piece of furniture for the home's lounge.

After giving the nondescript table a cheerful coat of yellow paint, Rachel added decorative mosaic tiles - kindly donated by design and build company, Whitewaters - to create a pretty but practical work of art.

“Rachel has so much talent and loves nothing more than getting stuck into a craft project,” said recreation assistant, Heather. “Her upcycled table makes a colourful addition to our cosy lounge and is a real talking point, too.”
