Exeter Kindness Mural Update: We now have a blank canvas!

Here’s wishing you a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year from all of us at the Exeter Kindness Mural project.

We appreciate everyone who has made this project possible through their generosity.

The preparation phase took much longer than we anticipated and we’ve learnt how much kindness and patience go hand in hand. However, we’re thrilled to confirm that the renovation of the wall is complete. So, Paul Colsell now has a blank canvas to start the illustration in January 2024, which is very exciting! 

Exeter Kindness Mural, December 2023 Update

While Paul is in the USA for Christmas, Al Gibson brings this update on our progress.|

A big thank you to all our contractors who have transformed the wall over the past few months. We are pleased to end 2023 with all the bills paid and to confirm that we were able to give £500 to each of the three charities we are associated with, in time for Christmas. This includes the Crossline Soup Kitchen in the building. 

We would like to do more for people in need in our city and continue to raise funds for charity. So please consider giving a Christmas / New Year’s Gift of any amount. You can donate on our Crowdfunder Page or via this website.

Have a wonderful Christmas and all the best for 2024!

Many thanks from the Kindness Team
Paul Colsell, Gwenllian Riall, Al Gibson and Tim Davies.
