CommunityMasks4NHS was founded by two local women Melissa Santiago-Val, a Confidence for Change graduate, and Jane Horwood (designer of our website) with a team of volunteers together they have made over 5000 community- use masks, raising over £26,000 for NHS charities.
They invited Illuminate to collaborate with them and kindly donated masks to our team. There is lots of research and evidence on how creativity, crafting and sewing are good for positive mental health, so we were very happy to collaborate with them on such a great venture you can find out more here.
