“I came across Arty Folks by accident and was impressed by the commitment of the team and their considerable experience, built up over many years, supporting people in and around Coventry. Sadly, there is a considerable need for mental health services in our community and I’m proud to see the positive impact of Arty-Folks’ work. I have no artistic ability whatsoever, but am delighted that I am able to support Arty Folks, and who knows, some of the artyness may rub off.”
