Attention Message

Volunteers design and produce craft-making kits, for the purpose of donating to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for patients to use during their stay. We also work with charities (i.e. Post Pal) and design custom made cards for seriously ill children.

Volunteering Opportunities
Block 1 text

Crafting happiness supports UHCW Charity in offering creative art packs for the Hospital’s Healing Arts Programme, distributed via Artie the art cart which visits wards daily in an effort to cheer up patients and offer free crafts and games. The arts have a key role in improving the wellbeing and health of patients and can help to speed up recovery. We also support charities such as Post Pal.

Sessions are held on campus. Volunteers meet to design prototypes and make deconstructed crafts packs. Volunteers make a range of different craft packs and cards for different occasions including birthdays, Christmas, Easter, etc.
