Jenni said: "I regularly visits care homes and learning disability homes across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough for craft classes. 

“We will be supplying Creative Mojo kits, which are originally designed for care homes and for adults with learning disabilities and residents with dementia.  

“We are expanding into crafty kits which will be generally be for everybody, but we will also design kits that are specifically designed for people with dementia and disabilities.”
