The Animal Art Fair and Stody Lodge Gardens are delighted to announce that Ormiston Families, the charity caring for vulnerable children, young people and families across East Anglia, is the nominated charity for the Animal Art Fair’s Spring Exhibition. Two of Ormiston Families’ key Norfolk projects will be supported:
HMP Norwich - aimed at maintaining positive links between prisoners and their families, a wide range of services are offered including children visits; ‘baby-bonding’ sessions; accredited parenting courses; and ‘Story Book Dads’ scheme, whereby fathers dictate stories onto CDs for their children to keep.
The Holt Youth Project – Ormiston Families works in partnership with Holt Youth Project to deliver Young Carers' Groups - supporting children and young people who find themselves caring for family members with illness, disability or drug-dependency, whether short-term or long-term.
A Private View of the Animal Art Fair Spring Exhibition will take place on Saturday 16th May. Profits from the evening as well as a percentage of the sale price of all art sold will be donated to the charity.
In addition, Bruce Little, the celebrated South African sculptor, has very generously donated a delightful bronze sculpture of a young rhino, entitled ‘The Future,’ for an online auction. The auction will run until midnight on Monday 25th May and it is anticipated that significant interest will be seen in this beautiful and valuable sculpture, which at the time of print was auctioning at only £800 and is valued at £2,400.
