On Saturday, 3rd March and Sunday, 4th March, the Chilterns MS Centre will be hosting their “Pop Up” Art weekend. Michael Anthony Estate Agents are delighted to be supporting this superb fundraising event.
As a business that has been a cornerstone of local trade and industry for over 30 years, we are delighted to be supporting such a worthy cause. Into its 13th-consecutive year of hosting this wonderfully creative event that celebrates every facet of the arts, the Centre is looking forward to adding to the funds raised in previous years and we are aiming to add to this tally. To date over £100,000 has been raised this event alone and it’s helped the Centre provide an incredible 2,750 hours of physio, hydro, oxygen, occupational and complementary therapies to people in the local community with multiple sclerosis.
The event is free to attend and all visitors will be welcomed to a transformed Centre which features submissions which are available to purchase. Painters, photographers, sculptors, iron castors; the quality and quantity of artists attending will be staggeringly good. Furthermore, there will be Live Demonstrations from artists; there will be plenty to see and do.
To add to the glamour of the event, the Chilterns MS Centre are delighted Gillian Wright, who plays Jean Slater in iconic soap EastEnders, will be opening the Exhibition on the 2nd March 2018.
The Chilterns MS Centre provides a hugely valuable service to MS sufferers within a 25 miles radius. With over 330 people attending treatment at the Centre every week, the Centre are satisfied over 80p in every £1 goes back into providing services for those who suffer from MS.
Michael Donachie, Senior Partner at Michael Anthony, commented: “The work that the Chilterns MS Centre offers for sufferers of MS is truly superb. We are delighted to be associated with this event again and can’t wait to see many people visiting the Centre on the first weekend in March; it promises to be a colourful and enlightening weekend. Let’s hope the Centre raises plenty of funds.”
Hannah Asquith, Head of Fundraising and Communications at the Chilterns MS Centre, said: “Everyone at the Centre is delighted to have Michael Anthony Estate Agents back on board supporting our Pop Up Art weekend. The support of local businesses is essential to a successful weekend, and we wouldn’t be able to showcase artists’ work without them. Everyone at the Centre is very excited about welcoming you all to our Centre. Entry is free, although we do welcome a small donation towards the cost of the catalogue. So, come along and browse, perhaps make a purchase and enjoy the wonderful selection of food including lunches and homemade cakes with a cuppa.”
