Carol was recently interviewed by Sean Styles on BBC Radio Merseyside. They talked about Simon, the jewellery that Paul makes, and the new exhibition in Birkenhead Park. In case you missed it, we’ve got the clip here.
The third exhibition of Simon’s work takes place in the Gallery, Birkenhead Park April 29th to May 5th.
The opening on 28th April by Mike McCartney is by invitation only.
The exhibition, entitled Fractured Vision, will feature old and new designs by Simon, work from Wirral Potters, and contributions from the members of the craft group at Wirral Society of the Blind and Partially Sighted.
Copies of Simon’s work and jewelery featuring those designs will be on sale thoughout the week as well as some of the pottery.
The attached picture is from a previous exhibition which featured work from children from the local primary school.
The ladies of the guild very kindly made The Eye Fund their designated charity for 2012. Carol and Paul have visited them on several occasions and have always been made most welcome.
On the evening of January 17th 2013 Carol was presented with a cheque for £400. A tremendous amount from a small group of hard working ladies.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Our very good friends, Rod and Jean Sherratt, organised a concert at their church. The proceeds of £700 from the ticket sales went to The Eye Fund. Everyone who bought a ticket also brought along a tin of food for The Wirral Food Bank so lots of people benefited.
Rod and Jean worked tirelessly to make this possible. On the night of the concert Carol and Paul sold Eye Fund merchandise to the value of £325. (Amazing)
On the 8th December Carol and Paul joined church members at their Christmas fair and raised £106.
Grateful thanks to Rod and Jean.
On the 24th November Carol and Paul joined their good friends from the Wirral Society of the Blind and Partially Sighted at their annual Christmas Fair. This is always a great occasion and is as much fun as hard work.
£227 was raised for The Eye Fund.
