A photograph of Sew Positive participants – showing off fabulous lampshades made from upcycled and donated fabrics – won the Cambridge Centre for Voluntary Services (CCVS) photo competition 2023!
Sew Positive won the People’s Vote with a wonderful photo taken after participants made lampshades at its Cultivate course funded by Cambridgeshire County Council. The photographer was Melissa Santiago Val, the charity’s founder and CEO.
This course was a Social Prescribing programme aimed at people over 65 who are at risk of social care need, involving the use creative of sewing, upcycling and crafts to address social isolation.
