The 'family' of artists made their way up to north-west London to the plush, green surroundings of Belsize Village, NW3 where Oliver's Village Cafe is. The people behind this beautiful cafe has been supportive of Cafe Art ever since we started. Emma, one of the artists who has two of her beautiful paintings on display, presented Caroline, the owner, with a bouquet of flowers to express everyone's gratitude for sharing the wall space with the artists.

London, 15 April, 2015. “Yesterday was the best day of my life since having my stroke back in April 2011. I’m feeling empowered to make a change! All it takes is one person to better another person, but if he can help 2 people and then they help 2 people each then it creates a wave! A wave of hope! That’s my gift!
