Sarah with her Jewellery

The fabulous new range of silver and bead earrings, which are now being sold in our shop at the centre, are designed and made by Sarah Lake who is one of our service users.

Sarah had a stroke following a road traffic accident two years ago that has left her with life altering injuries. Sarah has been coming to The Brain Charity to take part in our Tuesday morning craft classes for the last eighteen months and is a self taught jewellery maker. Initially making earrings as gifts for friends and family, Sarah has decided to use her newly acquired skills to give something back to The Brain Charity for all of the support she’s been given.

We think you’ll agree that her stunning designs are a must have item and we’re delighted that Sarah has chosen to sell her beautiful earrings to fundraise for us!
