Harrogate-based mental health charity Claro Enterprises is launching an exhibition to showcase the work of its clients to the public. The exhibition will coincide with World Mental Health Day on Wednesday 10th October where a series of special events are planned.
Claro operates as a commercial workshop making goods for businesses and enabling people with long term mental health conditions to function in a voluntary real work environment. Clients have the chance to improve their quality of life, confidence, independence, self-esteem and gain skills, which aims to lead them towards securing meaningful employment.
From Monday 8th to Monday 15th October, woodwork and other items produced by Claro clients will be on show at a special exhibition at St Peter’s Church on Cambridge Road.
As Wednesday 10th is World Mental Health Day, Claro is inviting the town to join the team for coffee and cake from 10.30-12.00pm and for the chance to enjoy some woodworking or ‘Splash Art’, working with Veterans WoodCraft and ChopArts; both organisations have lasting relationships with Claro and their work is featured in the exhibition.
Owen Jones of Claro Enterprises added:
Our clients work very hard and produce some truly beautiful work.
This exhibition is an exciting opportunity for people to view and purchase the work, but importantly to understand how important it is to engage with and learn about mental health.
We hope that Harrogate will get behind us, especially for the coffee morning and activities on the 10th for World Mental Health Day.
