A new display of paintings unveiled at Loughborough General Hospital has been a great success with visitors and patients. Proceeds from the sale of artworks, all painted by local artists, has also given a boost to the charity Friends of Loughborough General Hospital in a cheque presentation attended by the local MP Nicky Morgan.
Charnwood Drawing and Painting Club has for many years supported the Charity by providing artworks to brighten the Hospital’s corridors, which the new display will continue. Chair of Friends of Loughborough hospital, Maureen Block, said they were delighted with popularity of the paintings and the boost given to hospital funds.
The Club holds regular demonstrations by nationally acclaimed artists. The next one will be held on Tuesday 25th September from 7 to 9pm when accomplished watercolourist David Wilcox will be ‘at the races’ at Woodbrook Vale School, Grasmere Road, Loughborough, LE11 2ST to capture the drama and excitement of horse racing. Further details of the event can be found at www.charnwooddrawingpaintingclub.com. A small entry fee applies but refreshments and free parking are provided. Non-members are warmly invited.
