Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre helps people with disabilities go beyond expectations. We need your help to ensure that this creative community hub continues to thrive.


Many volunteers, of all ages, give their time to Henshaws. We wouldn’t be able to run our life-changing services for people with sight loss and other disabilities without you!




Fundraising is a great way to raise essential funds for Henshaws, and a wonderful opportunity to get inventive, be creative, and have fun! You can fundraise through groups, through your work, school or group, or fundraise in your own way.
