Art exhibition at Chelsea nursery raises money for foundation
Date: 07 Dec 2016
Children at Bright Horizons Chelsea Day Nursery and Preschool have raised money for the organisation’s foundation, the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, as a result of an art exhibition they put on at the nursery.
The children produced their own versions of work by Jackson Pollock, Matisse, Van Gogh and Picasso, with the parents coming along to purchase their work. A total of £371 was raised.
“The parents were very proud to purchase the children’s artwork,” said Chelsea Garratt, nursery manager. “We were pleased with the children’s attention to detail and delighted to raise such an amount to go towards a charity obviously very close to our hearts.”
Set up in 2005, the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children’s sole purpose is to help children and families in crisis. They achieve this by working with local community groups, shelters and with Bright Horizons clients to create Bright Spaces®, which are indoor and outdoor play spaces located in homeless shelters, domestic violence refuges and refugee centres.
The spaces are created in order to provide children and families in need with a special place to play, have fun and most of all feel safe.
