We received the fantastic news a couple of weeks ago that The Ernest Cook Trust have agreed a grant towards our Forest School Touch to See project for blind and partially sighted children and young people.
The Ernest Cook Trust is a leading educational charity, rooted in the conservation and management of the countryside, so it is particularly apt that they have chosen to support this exciting project.
Living Paintings’ Forest School Touch to See project was inspired by The Ernest Cook Trust’s ‘Outdoor Education Programme’ and ‘Forest School’, and will inspire blind and partially sighted children to explore and learn from the great outdoors, as well as supporting National Curriculum studies.
We are so thankful to the Trustees and Team at The Ernest Cook Trust for continuing their kind and loyal support of our work, and look forward to posting another blog update on progress on the creation of the book!
In the meantime, whilst you wait for ‘Forest School’ to arrive in the Living Paintings Touch to See Library, why not visit our online library and borrow ‘British Birds and their Habitat’, ‘The Nature of Britain’, ‘The Strong Little Tree’, ‘A Walk Along the Riverbank’, or ‘British Wildflowers’.
