Last chance to purchase David's artwork
Friday 5th January will be your last chance to view and purchase David’s work which currently hangs in our gallery at Thoresby
The piece of artwork was very kindly donated to the charity we’ve teamed up to support this Christmas, When You Wish Upon A Star, and all money from the sale of the artwork will go straight to When You Wish.
Along with the artwork, there are also ‘Stars for Wishes’ to purchase for £1, the stars are available in Thoresby’s Visitor Centre and can be written on to either hang on our special wish tree in the gallery or taken home for your own Christmas Tree.
When You Wish Upon a Star has a simple mission, to grant the Wishes of children living with a life threatening illness. Their wishes have the power to transform the lives of the children and families they work with and since 1990, When You Wish have proudly granted over 17,500 across the UK. They believe every child deserves to smile and with your support, they can give children and their families something to look forward to through times of uncertainty and often financial as well as emotional strain. Wishes allow the family to put their child’s illness on hold as they have fun and create precious memories together.
In addition to their wishes throughout the year, they also organise a number of days out and treats for the children like their incredible Harry Potter-themed trips on-board the beautiful Belmond Northern Belle train. Every December the charity also enables hundreds of children to swap hospital beds for sleigh rides transporting them away from appointments, treatments and injections to the winter wonderland of Lapland on board their Santa Express flights.
We’d love to raise as much money as possible for When You Wish, so please make a visit to Thoresby to see David’s work and to purchase a star.
Thoresby will be closed over Christmas on 24th, 25th and 26th December and on New Year’s Day.
