Charity Lunch for Cancer Research UK
The team at Knockderry House are gearing up to support Cancer Research UK in May.
We are joining up with Lifeworks 11 art exhibition for Cancer Research UK which is being held on 7 and 8 May at the Royal Northern and Clyde Yacht Club in Rhu, Helensburgh. The exhibition features a variety of contemporary works from artists with an international reputation, including Peter Graham ROI, Stephen Carruthers, Christine McArthur and Laura Drever.
This is the third time that Lifeworks has been run and are back by popular demand both from the public but also from the artists. Previous Lifeworks exhibitions were held in 2006 and 2008.
The venue is only a pleasant fifteen minutes drive away, and will be featuring a special ‘Lifeworks’ lunch menu on Saturday and Sunday of the show.
Head chef David Hetherington is putting together a truly exciting menu especially for the event and 25% of the price will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
Jennifer McEwan of Lifeworks 11 says, “It’s a great opportunity to view art in a way which is contemporary and friendly without the sometimes intimidating feel of a gallery with the huge added bonus of knowing that your purchase directly supports Cancer Research UK.
“Art fairs are not new ideas but we like to think we give our visitors a really special experience in magnificent surroundings and the artists themselves are donating a portion of the purchase price of each piece to the charity in lieu of commision. We think it is a win -win formula.
“We are hugely indebted to Beth and Murdo MacLeod, David and the entire team at Knockderry House for their amazing support. What better day out than come to lifeworks, be tempted by some lovely art work, have a delicious lunch and maybe pop back to the exhibition to buy.”
Good luck to Lifeworks 11!
