Tile Me a Story Boosts Funds to Improve Facilities for Disabled


The good and the great visited Camphill MK recently to launch a brand-new community-wide art project called Tile Me a Story.

The Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Countess Howe, and Dame Ann Limb, High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire (pictured above), joined guests to create the first tiles of a new permanent artwork.


The initiative is part of a £15 million fundraising campaign to expand the facilities at Camphill in Milton Keynes, doubling the number of rooms available for adults with learning disabilities.


New buildings will include fully accessible accommodation designed to adapt and grow with residents’ needs, including level access, hoists, adaptive technology, and carer sleep-in space.


The tiles, which measure 15cmx 15cm, are hand-crafted on site and Camphill MK hopes to hundreds of people from the wider community will choose to donate to the project, adding their own story to the unique artwork.



Donors are invited to give money at three levels. The first level for donations pays for Camphill MK residents to create a tile on the donor’s behalf. The second level allows the donor to send in artwork or images they would like recreated, and the third level will enable individuals to visit Camphill MK’s ceramic studio to make their own tiles in person.


Countess Howe and Dame Ann chose to recreate their ceremonial badges/crests.
