City artist Charron Pugley-Hill has reached out to the community through a “sharing economy” group.
Charron generously shared her artistic talents with the YMCA, adding colour to the communal lounge at the Time Stop, which is an emergency housing for 16/25-year-olds in need of shelter.
The exchange was arranged through the new sharing economy – Helpasandwhen.co.uk, which connects people willing to share their skills, talents, knowledge or time with those looking to benefit.
A second exchange saw photographs taken by Layne Howlett, a student from Peterborough Regional College who offered her photography skills to gain work experience.
