Charity Art on display at Artworx Gallery raising funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital

West Midlands based artist Rebecca Pamplin has donated an original painting ‘Raising A Smile’ for a charity raffle held by pupils at Highclare School with all proceeds going to Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The piece valued at £550 will be on public display throughout May at Artworx Gallery, Cannock.

‘Raising A Smile’ encapsulates a sense of childhood innocence with a fun approach; the bright and colourful acrylic layered painting is finished with a resin coating, appealing to audiences of any age. The piece showcases an array of coloured balloons, with one single iconic red balloon symbolising Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

To raise funds for a very good cause pupils at Highclare School are taking part in a charity fashion show on Friday 5th July at Highclare The Abbey, 10 Sutton Road, Erdington, B23 6QL, where the raffle of the donated painting, ‘Raising A Smile’ will take place. All proceeds from the Fashion Show and raffle will be donated to the Cancer Unit at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Sadly it is reported that 1 in 500 children will develop cancer by the age of 15. Birmingham Children’s Hospital are aiming to raise the £4m needed to achieve the world class Cancer Centre that patients and their families deserve.

  • Providing more beds
  • Adding ensuite bathrooms
  • Creating more spacious bed areas for extra comfort and privacy
  • Ensuring all patients are treated in one area of the hospital
  • Making a ‘home from home’ where children can play, learn and enjoy family visits
  • Building a welcoming parents’ room, a cosy retreat for all the family
