The 26th Annual CancerCare Bridge Tournament
LoveLinks - Forge a Chain for CancerCare
You are invited to be part of a special (fundraising) community art project led by CancerCare, between Wednesday 24 July 2019 1:00 PM and Saturday 2 November 2019 2:00 PM
The project invites participants to each create a sterling silver link, making your own unique mark, to become part of a much larger, and stronger, chain.
The completed chain - a collaborative work created by all participants - will be exhibited around the region. Afterwards it will be converted into smaller lengths to make of one-of-a-kind silver bracelets and necklaces, to be sold in aid of local charity, CancerCare North Lancashire & South Cumbria; supporting those in our community facing the impact of cancer.
The concept is inspired by the strength members of CancerCare’s Jewellery & Creative Metals group gain from coming together at their weekly activity session; one of many support services provided by the charity. Members of the group have each been affected by cancer or other life limiting health conditions; either as a patient themselves, a career, or having experienced the loss of a loved one. They all come together to learn the techniques and develop the skills to make beautiful silver jewellery in an understanding, supportive and caring environment.
By joining together, like the silver links in the chain, each unique individual becomes part of stronger unit, supporting one another in the face of adversity.
