School Start First Impressions is a privately funded initiative of Addenbrooke Foundation - Registered Charity CC51707
Our Fundraising Art Auction held on Wednesday 16th August, proved to be a successful night for all. Exhibitions Gallery of Fine Art, thank you for the opportunity to hold this fundraiser. With your support we can continue to provide children turning five with the necessary school items they require to start off on the right foot.
We had a great turn out and successfully sold 8 out of the 9 donated art pieces. A huge Thank you to all those that joined us as well as to Ruth Phipps and Jaejin Lee, two of the featured artists.
Our Harcourts Preet and Co Auctioneer, Johnny Bright brought the right balance of energy, humour and flare to the evening. Thank you Johnny - we appreciate you giving up your time to help us.
A huge Thank you must also go to Brian Gaynor, Milford Asset Management, who presented a thought provoking speech about today's economy and the influence of technology.
And finally a Thank you to Tom Howard from Onvine who complemented the evening with a range of beautiful wines, which no doubt gave some of the punters some dutch courage!
