The Clare Foundation was delighted to partner with the Chilterns Neuro Centre as they hosted their Pop-Up Art Weekend in Wendover. It was their most successful year yet with over a thousand art enthusiasts venturing into a realm of creativity, as the usually clinical space was transformed into an art gallery for the weekend with record-breaking sales.

The exhibition featured over 80 extremely talented local artists covering a wide range of artistic styles including paintings, sculptures, glasswork, ceramic and jewellery.

Edible masterpieces, in the form of an incredible display of cakes, were also on sale adding another layer of joy to the event and also contributing significantly to the fundraising efforts.

In total £21,000 was raised, which goes some way towards their target of raising over £1 million every year to support their work enabling people affected by MS, Parkinson’s and strokes to live life to the full.

“The fabulous success of our Pop-Up Art Weekend is a testament to the power of community and creativity coming together for a great cause,” said Danielle Medd, Fundraising Manager at the Chilterns Neuro Centre. ” I am deeply thankful to our incredible artists for their generosity, and a heartfelt shoutout to our amazing volunteers—this event simply wouldn’t happen without their commitment.”

Robin Walker, Chair of The Clare Foundation:
“The Chilterns Neuro Centre’s Pop-Up Art Weekend is simply a fantastic opportunity to connect artists from across the region with the people of Buckinghamshire.
 
On behalf of our Board of Trustees, Mike Clare and our CEO, Martin Gallagher, I am grateful and really happy that we are able to co partner this joint initiative. It was terrific for us to see so many people enjoy and connect with both the artists and those who support the challenging but great work of the Chilterns Neuro Centre. I’d like to express my gratefulness and thanks to all of those who attended and to Richard, Stella and both teams for putting on this event.”
 

The Chilterns Neuro Centre provides treatments and services to people affected by MS, Parkinson’s and strokes, empowering them to live healthier and happier lives.
