LMF helps showcase local artists

News

john-valOn 16/17 September, an art exhibition was hosted at The Cedar Tree, organised by Bagshot Events, with proceeds going to LMF.

Numerous local artists and photographers displayed their work and generously gave 10% of the sales to us. The exhibition was opened by the Deputy Mayor for Surrey Heath Valerie White and the visitors commented how nice it was to see the local talent that exists in the community displayed so positively.

The event was successful on so many levels: local artists and businesses got to showcase their work, LMF was pleased to sit in the heart of the community and build relationships with residents and businesses.

A special thanks to https://bagshotvillage.com/ and http://www.cedartreebagshot.co.uk for their generous support, and also to the exhibitors who took part and donated 10% of their sales:

On 26 June 2016, seven members of STIHL GB and the BWP Group took to the skies to fundraise for the Lisa May Foundation. Sponsorship is still coming in but their efforts will top over £3,500. Although the weather was overcast, the day ended brightly with all seven skydivers completing the 11,500ft drop, before landing back on Earth with huge smiles and a great sense of achievement.
The Foundation can’t thank our fundraisers enough, for their creativity, bravery and high spirits during the day, and also to Alan Meeks for coming along to take some of these amazing shots, which are viewable below.  A video of the day’s events is below.
