Level Best in the newspapers

We have been very fortunate to get into the local papers recently and here's the story behind it.

One of our service users Ben Andrew has been having an exhibition of his drawings of Disney characters on our breakfast bar wall. Ben's is the fourth such exhibition showcasing the work of our service users each month and his mum was so impressed to see it, she contacted local newspaper man Neil D'arcy Jones who was happy to come and talk to us about the service we offer.

 

We are celebrating our 10th year in Colchester and Neil was keen to hear about this, as well as talk to Ben and take some photos of us.

 

A segment of his article is below and a link to the full article is below enjoy!

 

"IT's possibly Colchester's best kept artistic secret.

That's the Level Best Art Cafe in Culver Street East, which has been providing people with learning disabilities with learning opportunities to gain work experience and training for the last ten years. 

The social enterprise project, run by the Dacon Trust, has a number of project strands from making and selling items such as jams, chutneys and fruit cordials; to working and growing produce, on their allotment; working alongside the park rangers in Castle Park; running the cafe itself; and finally taking part in art and design projects"
