Interesting developments!!!

Remember last weekend we went up to London??  And we tied this CD to a railing?
Well the following day we got an email from a chap called Richard saying he'd found it near Euston station.

That's Richard with one of his drawings.  He's a homeless artist in London and he's managed to sell some of his drawings too!!!  We've been emailing over the week and apparently he's involved with a project called Cafe Art which (as one of their annual projects) gives disposable cameras to homeless people in London to take photos around London, and the best 12 pictures get put in a calendar - it's the My London Calendar and sells for £10 each.  They are provided with a stall at Spitalfields Market for a week from October 10th to sell the calendars, with 50% of the money going to the project and 50% going to the vendor.

From their website, it says "Cafe Art is a unique initiative showcasing artwork created by people affected by homlessness or are socially vulnerable.  However we encourage you to experience it yourself firsthand by exploring the many small, hardworking and independent London Cafes.  More than 20 cafes have given up wall space to exhibit these paintings.  With a latte in one hand, sit back, relax and enjoy."

They even have an expedition opening up at Qbic Hotel, 42 Adler Street, London E1 1EE starting 2nd October.

The My London 2018 calendars can be purchased online here 2018 Calendar and please can you name Richard Fletcher as the vendor...... that way, he can get the 50% sellers fee!
