In response to the COVID-19 situation, during spring East Durham Creates designed and distributed our Bee Positive Boxes. Funded by the Sir Tom Cowie Foundation, the Bee Positive Boxes were creative art packs to support people at the risk of social isolation and loneliness.

The packs included some art and planting activities, tasty treats, and messages of hope, as well as Knit for Peace kindly supplying knitted items too.  Our message of positivity shared to the community focused on although the past year has been difficult we must ‘bee’ positive, better days are ahead!
