St Leonard's Hospice Exhibition

Pleased to announce that our recent mini exhibition at St Leonard's shop in Heworth raised over £175.00 for the Hospice.  In addition, some of our exhibitors generously donated all of their sales revenue - pushing that total up further. A total of 24 pictures and prints were sold.

St Leonard’s Hospice is an independent charity, providing specialist palliative care and support for local people with life threatening illnesses.  Their assistance is free of charge to patients and their families but not free to provide, and the charity relies heavily on the generosity of the public to help raise the £4.5 million it costs each year to run St Leonard’s Hospice.  

St Leonard’s Hospice currently has 11 shops situated in and around the area served by St Leonard's Hospice. These are staffed by a paid manager and a team of volunteers.  All money raised from the shops goes directly to the care of patients and their families.

You can read about the Hospice and the care they provide here.
We hope to be back with another Exhibition at St Leonard's in January 2017.
