Money raised for Salter’s Hill Charity

Thanks to everyone who came to our summer open studios weekend, it was a great success and with your support we raised £153.86 for Salter’s Hill Charity.

Yesterday Fleen and I visited Salter’s Hill in Ledbury, when we got there everyone was busy outside gardening and making bird feeders in the wood workshop. Everyone gathered in the creative learning pottery workshop where I presented the cheque, they were delighted and we all celebrated with tea and cake!

On behalf of Salter’s Hill Julie Newman thanked the artist involved and everyone who came to the open Studio.  The money raised will be used to fund materials for the ceramics workshops that run at the charity 3 times a week and provide both skills based training and therapeutic opportunities to work with Clay.
