I'm raising money in aid of Art in Healthcare and every donation will help. If you are able to contribute a donation in support it would mean so much to me.
Art has helped me on a personal level throughout my life and continues to be a joy and a refuge for me. Making and engaging with art work has helped many of us through the pandemic when small acts of creativity can make a huge difference to a day spent in isolation. Art can also help lift people who are sick in hospital and make a huge impact on someone by changing the environment they are recovering and engaging in, offering inspiration and hope. It's something I feel passionately about and so when it came to picking a charity to fundraise for and help get me out the door training on a cold wet morning, I chose this lesser known, small charity.
