Art auction with a special difference raises £5k

We're so proud of our wonderfully talented Speech & Language Therapist (volunteer) Clare Latham, whose other extraordinary hidden talent - botanical paintings - raised a whopping £5,000 towards our work last week.

Clare very generously held an exhibition of thirty of her beautiful paintings before auctioning them at Westbury Arts Centre in Milton Keynes. A very special evening courtesy of a very special lady.

Below: Clare working with Erin (who we’ve supported with eye control since she was 2½) and pictures from the auction evening
