Tomasina and Katie from the Art Room at WHEC have announced they will be running in the Edinburgh half marathon 31 May 2015 to raise money for the Art Room.
The girls have set a target of £1000 and have at the time of writing so far raised £370. You can sponsor them and find out more information about the event on their Justgiving page here.
We have been working for The Art Room for one term now and have been blown away by the positive effect the project has had at Wester Hailes Education Centre – The school has fully embraced our presence and we are all really excited about running for the charitiy and gaining extra funds to continue to make all this happen.
The Art Room believes in learning and achieving through art. Working with up to 72 students each week at the Wester Hailes Education Centre, The Art Room offers art as therapy for those who might be facing challenges in their lives. Since opening at WHEC over 40 students have used The Art Room, and this year the intervention is being extended to the neighbouring associated primaries.
