Ashby Arts Club

Over the Easter weekend of 2016, Ashby Arts Club held their annual art exhibition at Ticknall Village Hall.  The members of the Club chose Hospice Hope as their charity this year and decided that all raffle ticket sales should be donated to our charity.

On the preview evening on Good Friday the Secretary of the Club, Paul Pritchard, opened the proceedings and introduced the guests.  The Mayor of Ashby, Mrs Mary Tuckey and Chair of Hospice Hope, Stewart Shepherd had the opportunity to talk to the Club members and experience the high standard of work set by the members.

Over the three days, Saturday to Monday, over 400 people attended, plus members and their guests and many pictures were sold.

On Monday, 25 April Hospice Hope attended a Club meeting to accept a most generous cheque for £200 from their Chair Barbara Royds.

Dr Lesley Notghi, a Trustee of Hospice Hope, Ann Bottomley, the leader of the Coalville / Whitwick Support Café and Stewart Shepherd attended the presentation and were able to thank the members of Ashby Arts Club for their support and most generous donation.
