ARTWORK created by disabled students for an import and distribution business in Leigh has been unveiled.
Laltex commissioned the Seashell Trust - which educates and cares for children and young people with complex disabilities and communication disorders - to create a piece for it’s headquarters.
Marketing director Sanjay Mulchand requested a painting for the reception of Laltex's Leigh Commerce Park offices. She said: “We were delighted to receive such a fantastic piece of artwork from the Seashell students.
“We had no idea the positive impact it would have in the company, not only from an aesthetic point of view but by demonstrating to employees and visitors the wonderful creative ability of the students.”
Students at the trust's Royal School and College Manchester campus created the canvas, depicting the globe and made up of their hand and foot prints.
Leader of Wigan Council, Lord Smith of Leigh, who unveiled the painting, said: “To unveil a wonderful piece of art created by Seashell students was terrific and the students were rightly proud of their work.”
