We were delighted to hear that Ainsley Louw's chocolate wrapper design has been one of five chosen for the first print run of the Chocolate Time and Spring Foundation awareness and fundraising campaign.
Mrs Cindie Ah Ling, Acting Principal of the Peter Clarke Art Centre, explains:
The Peter Clarke Art Centre Grade 11 Surface and Communication Design learners as well as Grade 11 and 12 FET Design learners from Cedar High School took part in a project to create awareness about mental health and raise funds for the Spring Foundation at the Lentegeur Hospital in Mitchells Plain.
Each learner designed two chocolate wrappers as part of their project. Five wrappers were chosen by Chocolate Time and the Spring Foundation to wrap a variety of chocolates to be sold as a fundraiser for the Spring Foundation Gardens at Lentegeur Hospital.
Ainsley Louw, who attends the Art Centre and who is a Visual Arts student this school, was excited to get involved in the project, because it is an issue that is "close to her heart". We are extremely proud that her design was one of the five chosen for the first print run.
The chocolates are currently sold in a pack of five to represent all five of the chosen wrapper designs at R350 per set. The chocolate is available in Belgian Milk, Belgian Dark 56%, Belgian Dark 70% and Sugar-Free. The wrappers can be co-branded by corporates and individuals who want to support the work of The Spring Foundation.
