LATCH, The Children’s Cancer Charity, Painting Fundraiser

NB: We will only be able to mail paintings within the UK.

LATCH supports the children and their families being treated by the Oncology Unit at the Children’s Hospital of Wales, whose catchment area stretches from Chepstow to Aberystwyth. Around 70 new cases of childhood cancer are diagnosed every year. LATCH has been supporting members of my own family and I wanted to raise some funds for this lovely charity.

Since the COVID19 lockdown began over a year ago, I have been painting every week with Ed Sumner’s live tutorials on the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. Ed teaches painting skills by copying work by great artists. I write on my artblog every day and as I’ve been putting these paintings up onto my blog I have been asked many times if I would be willing to sell them. The idea is attractive but I don’t want to make money from copies. But as the lockdown has run on and on, I now have almost 60 copies of masterpieces and I’ve decided to sell some of them to raise money for charity.

LATCH

LATCH was formed in 1982 by a group of families and friends who recognised that the children diagnosed with cancer or leukaemia and their families not only needed medical support, but also social and welfare support to ease the huge financial and emotional burden placed on families with a child in treatment.

They do fantastic work but are not funded by the NHS; in fact they often donate equipment to the children’s cancer unit. All their funding comes from things like this so it would be great if you could buy a painting and help them out. You get a beautiful copy of a painting by one of the great masters to hang on your wall and at the same time you donate to the valuable work of an invaluable service. Please click here to see the work they do.

Sprta the Cat supports LATCH Wales too
