Wellspring Cancer Support Network

Have you heard of Wellspring?  I hope you haven’t had need for this wonderful service but let me tell you about this amazing centre for cancer support which is entirely free of charge.  Q. Design had the opportunity to be involved in the overhaul of the Halton-Peel Wellspring Birmingham Gilgan House.  They took a small house and made it into a gorgeous, spacious home for supporting those living with cancer and their families.  We were able to manufacture drapery, window cushions and toss cushions to make this space truly inviting.

 

The fabrics, all provided by Kravet were simply stunning!  We were honoured to be part of this renovation.  It truly is amazing to see what fabric, colour and light can do to a space.  What better way to make those that are experiencing challenging times feel cozy and welcomed?!  Thanks to Wellspring for including us and for allowing us to contribute to such a worthwhile cause!

 

In their words:

“Over the past year, Wellspring in Oakville has undertaken a construction project to double the size of the Centre and the parking facilities.  The expansion has provided Wellspring with purpose built program areas for art therapy and children’s programming while enabling the introduction of new and expanded programs such as Nourish, in our new teaching kitchen and a full Money Matters Resource Centre.  Our expanded exercise facility will allow greater access to our 30 week Cancer Exercise program.  Special attention has been paid to “green” construction principles in order to create as energy efficient and toxic free environment as possible.”
