Michael Anthony Estate Agents was a proud headline sponsor of the Chilterns MS Centre’s Pop Up Art Weekend. Hosted on the first weekend in March, the snow made the scene looked picturesque but it caused considerable headaches for many – including the organisers of the event.
However, the Centre and visitors would not be beaten. Despite having to cancel the prestigious opening night, the Centre beat all the odds – and the snow – to generate amazing and record-breaking £14,300. Over the course of the remaining two days, 800 visitors attended the event and showcased work from 94 artists.
Without the help of the sterling group of volunteers from the local community, RAF Halton, visitors and sponsors the show would not have taken place. All the hard work paid off as the Centre raised £200 more than last year. The record-breaking total will provide over 400 hours of treatments and make a real difference to the lives of people in the local area living with multiple sclerosis.
Michael Donnachie, senior partner for Michael Anthony commented: “What an amazing event! Well done to everyone at the Chilterns MS Centre. Michael Anthony Estate Agents were proud and delighted to be involved with a charity that does so much for the local community. The snow caused considerable headaches, but speaking on behalf of the whole business, I’m glad the Centre raised a record amount. By being a tiny part of the effort, makes me very proud. Next year’s show will take place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th March 2019. And we’re delighted to be supporting this fantastic community-focused event again. It’s fantastically inspiring.”
