All in a days work

Local charity Akin hosted a unique event at Church yesterday which saw blank canvas' blossom into masterpieces and we were highly impressed (understatement).

Like all good stories, Akin's began whilst travelling where they discovered kids didn't have school uniforms. When they returned to Sheffield they got creative, designed some t-shirts to help raise money for schools to provide uniforms and they have continued to do this amazing work.

Yesterdays event, Paper Islands saw a group of artists (some familiar to Kelham, others from further afield) make something out of nothing in just 8 hours. The end results are stunning and to be auctioned off for Akin's charity.

Keep an eye on Akin's Facebook and Instagram for updates and the website to buy a tee or two.
