Colourful Path of Joy

Imagine being so dedicated to something that you want to be reminded every time that you open your door?! Well, that is exactly what Bedfordian Pritti Saggi has done, with the help of local illustrator Sarah Harrison.

Pritti, who founded local wish-granting charity Creating Memories back in 2018 to help bring joy to children with life-limiting or terminal illnesses, was determined to lift her own spirits after months of lockdown by bringing a splash of colour to her pathway.

After discussions with Sarah, however, the two of them saw an opportunity to create an uplifting piece of art for all to enjoy.

Pritti says;

“Covid-19 has meant that I have had to stop carrying out wishes for children through Creating Memories and while the health and safety of everyone is obviously the most important thing, I have found it difficult.

Since becoming a registered charity in the spring of last year we have been building the charity up behind the scenes, and this artwork is a way for me to remind myself of what Creating Memories means to me.

Sarah’s talent and vision has completely transformed my initial plan for this pathway and created something truly amazing. It makes me smile every day and I hope it makes others smile on their daily walks too.”

Sarah says;

“When I saw Pritti’s shout-out for a collaborator on this project, something connected and I knew I had so get involved. Her energy made the creative process an absolute joy, and seeing passers-by smile, has been truly heartwarming.

In the spirit of Creating Memories, I am so happy this artwork has made Pritti’s own wish a reality.

At the moment there is a feeling that lockdown has gone on for so long, kindness is dwindling. I hope the path can bring back and share some local community positivity.”
