Today we at London Relocation Ltd. are proud to spread the word on a new philanthropic organization, Arts Mentoring! Founded by three local Notting Hill residents (including our dear friend and guest blogger, Sue Hillman, of It’s Your London tours), Arts Mentoring aims to bring the joy of art into the lives of orphan children, offering them sustenance for the soul. As they say on their website:
“By ‘arts’ we mean everyone involved in artistic expression from singers, to actors, to painters, photographers, musicians but not limited to these at all!
At Arts Mentoring we know we have had the luxury of personal experience in the arts and have always been keen supporters but we know that these experiences are not typical for millions of children around the world and in the UK and it was time to help change this. Children whose lives are hard can find joy through the arts as they see another side to life, have a chance to express themselves and learn skills that may change their lives.”
As this new charity broadens its support base, they’re looking to officially kick things off at their Launch Party on Saturday, 5 June. The event will take place from 7:00pm to 11:00pm at the gorgeous Notting Hill venue, 20th Century Theatre on Westbourne Grove (just a few doors West of Portobello Road). It promises to be a jubilent evening of cocktails and canapes as well as live performances that include the jazzy vocals of Rebecca Poole, pop/rock dazzlings of Tiger Lilly, and humorous shinanigans of ventriloquist Nina Conti & Monk. Do book your tickets and support a most meaningful cause that will inspire the children of the world!
