Work by artist with learning disability to be showcased across Warwickshire

Leamington Editorial 26th Jan, 2018   0

THE TALENTS of a woman with a learning disability will be showcased across Warwickshire after she created the winning design for a quality assurance mark competition.

Mo Potter attends Heart of England Mencap’s day service in Warwick – Mencap Pathway, and along with other members, was invited to design a new mark to represent Warwickshire County Council’s peer review programme.

The new review programme helps ensure services are providing a high standard of care and support.

Mo’s mark, which features a colourful eye design, will appear on all peer review documents and certificates to service providers like Mencap, which agreed to be part of the scheme.




Mo was presented with flowers, chocolates and Hobbycraft vouchers by council representative Jayne Barrow, who described Mo’s entry as eye-catching and creative.

Mencap chief executive Helena Wallis said: “Mo clearly has a real talent for art and design – she has also designed our charity Christmas cards in the past.”
