In addition to Julie's 'Seasons Tweetings' Christmas card, the submission of her fox and hare paintings led us to producing this beautiful set of tea towels featuring her artwork.
Julie’s partner, Mark, first joined the Army in 1993, whilst on exercise in 2009 he injured his back and was medically discharged in 2014. The couple have both benefitted from the Charity’s support, with art particularly helping Julie: 'I fell in love with the art room. When I met Mark, I was a very creative person, that seemed to get pushed away when he was injured – I just didn’t have time for it any more'.
Julie says, 'Drawing and painting helps me forget about all my worries as I am only concentrating on what is on the paper in front of me'.
'To all those who have raised money for Help for Heroes I say a big THANK YOU! being able to spend time for myself painting and creating has benefitted me, whilst Mark has made friends, found new hobbies and is slowly gaining his independence and courage to do things unaided again.'
