hope springs Art Exhibition 2023

The ‘Glimmers of Hope’ Exhibition was held on 15 November to celebrate 25 years of hope springs. It highlighted the nature of what hope springs is about: A community which fosters connectedness and celebrates the individual people and what they bring to the hope springs program.

Spring has sprung and the Monday Music Group is out in the sun!

We also began to explore marimbas again after what seems like YEARS since we’ve been able to use the music room for marimbas and percussion.. yay!

‘Our Creative Community’ 2021

Recently, some hope springs staff and volunteers came together to prepare beautiful care packages for hope springs participants who have been struggling with lockdown.

Sixty care packages were prepared, which included a greeting card, a poem on a painting (written and painted by one of our volunteers), biscuits from church volunteer bakers, a lovely cake of soap, a coffee sachet, a can of soft drink, a chocolate and a fresh mango. Some participants also received a handmade boomerang bag, very kindly donated by Watsonia Neighbourhood House.

The care packages were distributed by hope springs staff, Jon Rumble and JJ, in mid-October and they have already received many appreciative messages from recipients.
