London’s Air Ambulance chosen to benefit from exhibition of artist’s work
Thursday 25th January 2018
British artist Jeremy Houghton has held an exhibition of his work in aid of our charity.
The event was held at Gallery 8 in central London, with guests gathering to view Jeremy’s paintings and also learn more about our life-saving service.
Speeches were given by Jeremy, charity trustee James Charrington and Lead Clinician Dr Gareth Grier.
Jeremy kindly donated 25% of all sales to our charity, helping to raise much needed funds to help us continue to provide London with an advanced trauma team.
Jeremy recently visited the helipad on top of The Royal London Hospital, to meet with some of the crew and see the helicopter up close. He was inspired by his visit to create a special, one of a kind painting featuring our air ambulance that was available to buy at the event.
Speaking at the exhibition, Jeremy said;
“It was wonderful and very humbling to learn more about London’s Air Ambulance and the vital life-saving work they do each day. I am very pleased to be able to support the service tonight and know that the money raised goes to such an important cause.”
CEO of London’s Air Ambulance Jonathan Jenkins said;
“ This event was a chance to explain our charitable status to a new audience, and with Jeremy generously donating 25% of all sales on the night, we were also able to generate much needed funds. All money raised will go towards keeping our service running 24/7, all year round.
We would like to say a very big thank you to Jeremy for his support and helping make this possible.”
