Mile End 2020 - a special fundraising project
Covid-19 had an enormous impact on all charities. The Rob George Foundation, was not spared. We saw our schedule of fundraising events wiped out overnight along with the anticipated income. However, the never-ceasing flow of applications from young people seeking support from the charity kept coming.
Due to good house-keeping over the preceding few years we were able to maintain our grant making. Actually, during the pandemic/lockdown we made our 1000th grant - a legacy Rob himself would be very proud of. However, the pandemic has forced us to think creatively about how we might raise some funds - hence the pictures and prints featured below. These pieces were inspired by one of my many "lockdown walks". The view is from the fields at the back of our house whilst the rape seed was in full flower in 2020, in fact you can see our house and St. Michael's Church, along with the mast at Colchester General Hospital in the pictures - a poignant local beacon during the past months. These fields are scheduled to become housing very soon, so I hope I have also recorded a local landscape/view for the future too.
As with all my art work, proceeds go to the Rob George Foundation - I hope you enjoy looking at them. Thank you in anticipation! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to make a purchase.
