As well as to the artists, a big thanks goes to...

- the Bovington Military Wives Choir!

This was their first concert since the first Lockdown 18 months ago but you wouldn't have noticed! They sang a selection of Christmas Carols to us all for an hour which was thoroughly enjoyed by artists and visitors alike!

- the Italian Bakery!

The standard of the Italian Kitchen and Bakery's food is always high, but they outdid themselves with their selection of lite-bites which they generously sold at the exhibition for our charities!

So with art, music and food - a good time was definitely had by all... !

So, £1373.50 was raised for charity !​

First to receive their funds from all that’s been raised this year was the Purbeck Youth and Community Foundation, seen here receiving their presentation cheque for £750.00 from Art4Action co-founder Julie Lewis. We then sent Frontline 19 their cheque for £405.00, being held here by CEO Claire Goodwin-Fee. Finally a cheque was presented to the Wareham Scouts and Guides for £218.50. 

A massive thanks to Domvs Estate Agents in Wareham for providing sponsorship to help us promote this year's events!
