TheGivingMachine deliver prizes to Rowan


Posted on July 10th, 2017 by Rachel Jackson

In our recent Giving Superhero Competition the Over 18’s category was won jointly by 6 students from Rowan.  Richard (Our Founder and CEO) and I were delighted to be able to visit them recently to deliver their prizes and let them know first-hand how delighted we were to receive their designs.

Rowan is a Cambridge based charity and arts centre for learning disabled people. They provide a safe, creative and welcoming environment where they use the arts as a tool to bring people together; break down issues of social exclusion and improve health and wellbeing.

Set up in 1984 to improve the lives of learning-disabled people through the provision of services and meaningful activities. It is a charity with a strong social enterprise ethos, which seeks to enhance the sustainability and future of Rowan for its beneficiaries. They are based on Humberstone Road in Cambridge, and run a number of studios including wood, ceramics, print, textiles and mixed media.

We were given a full tour of their studios and were able to meet many of their students. We are looking forward to using the designs in future marketing.

The winning designs are shown below.
