This year has been a fantastic year for DAVID HENTY ART. I have been very privileged to be able to support several charities.
THE SAGA CHARITY –
Saga Charitable Trust offered a David Henty painting for their cruise draw.
This charity believes passionately in giving something back to communities in developing countries that welcome Saga guests. They do this by supporting projects that bring health and welfare benefits, providing skills and opportunities for communities to become self sufficient, ultimately helping to break the cycle of poverty.
SAVE THE CHILDREN –
David Henty Art donated a Picasso for a silent auction at the biennial International Arbitration Ball in aid of Save the Children. This was a major event, for senior lawyers and their clients, held at Old Billingsgate, in the City of London.
This year the event made over £500,000 for Save the Children. It’s a wonderful cause and needs support now more than ever due to the challenges facing charities and the ongoing refugee crises throughout the world, which make Save The Children’s work so valuable.
MIND CHARITY –
I was a guest speaker at Indigo Restaurant for their ‘Food for Thought’ series. My fee was donated to MIND. This charity is close to my heart and helps people through Art therapy, which is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of expression and communication. Within this context, art is not used as diagnostic tool but as a medium to address emotional issues, which may be confusing and distressing.
Research suggests that arts and creative therapies may help with mental health problems, but more research is needed to establish which problems or conditions arts and creative therapies can treat, or if particular aspects of each type of therapy are especially important in helping with mental health problems.
Some people say they find these sorts of therapies helpful because they provide ways of addressing painful feelings and difficult experiences without having to talk about them – which can sometimes include experiences of trauma.
TUI FAMILY ASSOCIATION –
A unique Lowry style David Henty Original is to be the main prize for a raffle for the Family Association Charity.
It’s not too late to help support TUI Family association - The Family Holiday Association is the only national charity dedicated to providing much needed short breaks and day trips for families coping with some of the toughest challenges life can bring.
Raffle ticket are available at TUI North Street Brighton, either drop in or call 01273 820007 to reserve your tickets. The draw takes place on 15th December 2018.
