Sunnybank Art Exhibition 2019

2019 Sunnybank Art Exhibition

Join us in celebrating the wonderful things that make us unique at our ‘THIS IS ME’ art exhibition.

Now in its fourth year, the exhibition will be open to the public from 18th to 21st June 2019 at Bourne Hall in Ewell. We will be showcasing artwork created by talented artists with learning disabilities, many of which will be available for purchase.

Funds raised from the exhibition will allow us continue supporting adults with learning disabilities in the local community.

We provide a range of services, including free impartial advocacy, regular clubs and social activities, as well as a transition programme for young adults leaving education.

 

Dorothy Watson, CEO of The Sunnybank Trust comments, “We are delighted to share the talents and creativity of our members with the local community. This year’s exhibition aims to demonstrate that we are all unique and special in our own way; that we all have something valuable to offer to society and to our community.”

The Sunnybank art exhibition is run in partnership with MyTime (NHS daycentre) and The National Lottery  Community Fund.

Awards evening

When I first heard about the awards, I felt nervous and excited because I have never been to that type of event, I was looking forward to it.

Sunnybank was nominated for the volunteer of the year award and won silver!!!

It was nice to see so many people being nominated everyone was dressed to impress and it was a lovely evening even though it was very long.

I had to research the ingredients for the Greek salad.

I attended my first staff meeting to discuss the progress of Sunnybank.
