Throwing open its doors from midday to 5pm, the exhibition is chance to view an array of works created by members of the charity’s weekly art group while enjoying mulled wine and a mince pie.
Jamie Hilton, director of Fulham Good Neighbours, explains: “The art exhibition welcomes all members of the public to come together and celebrate the season of giving through art and generosity.
“Visitors will have the opportunity to admire and purchase captivating artworks, Christmas cards, and calendars as well as enjoy mulled wine and mince pies while actively contributing to meaningful causes.”
The charity – which launched in 1966 – supports older and disabled people through projects including gardening and DIY, befriending, and free weekly social clubs ranging from art, crafts and exercise, to digital support, choir and community lunches.
As well as enjoying the artworks on display, there’s chance to support the charity through buying its inaugural Christmas cards, priced £3 for 12 or 30p each, or a calendar for £5.
The exhibition is also an opportunity to chat to members of the Fulham Good Neighbours team and find out more about how the charity can help locals in need, adds Jamie.
“If you or your neighbour need help in your home or garden or would like to visit our social clubs running six days a week at our community centre, or learn how to get online, our friendly team of staff and volunteers are here to support,” Jamie adds.
“We want to hear from volunteers and partner organisations too – please be in touch. Let us know your ambitions for the community, and we will aim to facilitate.”
