On Friday 3rd May, St Michael’s Parish Centre, Ashford hosted an art exhibition by local artists, Julian and Emily Game, in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

The event, which was attended by sixty guests and showcased over eighty original artworks, has helped to raise over £4,000 for the children’s charity.

Julian’s granddaughter Mila recently underwent an operation at GOSH and is currently under their care. The event was organised as a way to say ‘thank you’ to GOSH for the incredible work they do treating and caring for children and young people.

Julian said: ‘I can’t begin to thank people enough for their generosity to this wonderful cause and especially the enthusiasm and support for this event.

‘I would, however, like to thank all those who worked tirelessly behind-the-scenes, whether it was setting up, meeting and greeting, baking on an industrial scale, clearing up, washing up, taking photographs, the loan of the stands (from Ashford Art Club) to present the artworks, the huge amount of discounted printing, and the use of the fabulous venue. Thank you!’
