The Tuesday Art Group regularly get together at Romanby Womens Institute to practice art.
Their weekly sessions are a social and learning occasion and they support and encourage their love of art and work on producing artwork in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
The amateur artists enjoy demos from artists and help each other in developing their creativity and imagination through their painting.
An exhibition of their artwork with a flora and fauna theme helped to raise this fantastic amount thanks to everyone who attended to view the scenic work. A raffle at the event and donations from the group’s generous members boosted the total.
“We chose the Friarage as it is our local hospital, a cause close to all our hearts and one which we all might need at some time.”
Chairman of the Friends of the Friarage, Dr Upendra Somasundram, said: “The lovely artwork is a pleasure to see and we are very grateful to the group’s members for the generous donation for the scanner appeal.”
