Thank you to everyone who has participated in the project that was launched in the Spring of 2017.
We have had donations for over 800 kits and the project has reached Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

All of the kits have now gone and so this first phase of the project is now closed.

If you wish to submit your Memory piece for further fund raising in the Silent Auction, please do so by the 31st March 2018. There is no obligation to return your Memory Artwork but instead you may like to send us an image for the website.
The submitted Artworks will be exhibited and auctioned for further fund raising at:

The Willis Museum, Basingstoke, from 30th June – 4th August 2018
Southampton Art Gallery (Foyer), from 12th August – 30th September 2018

The Silent Auction will take place throughout the duration of these two exhibitions via written bids and/or via the website. Bidding will close on 30th September 2018 and the winning bidders will be notified by the end of October 2018.

The project has been very exciting and engaged many people. We hope that you will be able to see the Images at one of the Exhibition venues or on the website and we look forward to your bids.

Elizabeth had a great response from the visitors at the  ICHF Stitch and Hobbycraft Show in Manchester last week. This, along with website enquiries, now means we only have around 50 Projects Kits left. So if you have already been advised on how to donate for your kit then don’t forget to get your payment in quickly, as these last kits will not last long ….. and as they say “when they’re gone they’re gone!”
