The Big Draw 2019 raises money for Naomi House & Jacksplace Hopsices

C&H Fabrics in Winchester kindly hosted The Big Draw 2019 event last year (October & December) for Naomi House & Jacksplace Hospices for children & young adults

The Big Draw is an international drawing festival held each year in October. Helen Talbot facilitated the events and engaged the public in doodling, drawing and generally having artistic fun. Helen who is an Adult Education Art Tutor at Brockenhurst College in the New Forest, has been an Ambassador and fundraiser for Naomi House for over 20 years and has registered for the event for the past 2 years.

Many members of the public participated in creating the artwork including well known illustrator Mike Payne who donated his drawing for fundraising purposes.

Helen raised just over £350 for Naomi House & Jackplace with Mike’s drawing up for auction with £100 already bid.
