We sold enough calendars to distribute more than £5,000 in art vouchers to the artists and art groups! Without your help, this would not have been possible. at all So, thank you very, very much for all of us at Cafe Art!
hank you too to the big-heartedness of Atlantis Art Materials
whom we have teamed up with to hold a very special event at their premises in the East End of London on Friday 10th May 2013 at 11:30am, to celebrate the achievements of all the artists who helped raise this money for their own art groups through their participation in the calendar and cafes.
Art gift vouchers bought using the money raised will be distributed to the artists and their art groups on the day to enable them to buy art materials. And thanks to the generosity of Atlantis Art Materials, they have even increased their values too! What more could be asked from what is perhaps Europe's largest fine art materials store. So thank you again to everyone at Atlantis Art Materials!!!
Not only that, Winsor & Newton
, purveyors of the world's finest artists' materials since 1832 have joined in the celebrations too by offering free, exclusive goody bags to everyone.
And to round it up, the local Pret A Manger
will be supplying us with refreshments, snacks and sandwiches, for free!
As the Beatles song goes "..... A splendid time is guaranteed for all!". So, thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts to Atlantis Art Materials, Winsor & Newton, Pret A Manger and all those of you who believed in London's homeless people and bought a ONE calendar, without which this would NOT have been possible.
Photos and a report will be posted after the event for you to enjoy. So stay tuned.
