Another amazing success story with £12,000 raised over the five days. It was worth the wait.
Thank you to everyone who came along and supported this fantastic event. Thank you to all those who entered canvases, bought them, donated cakes and raffle prizes and helped behind the scenes.
This year the money will go mainly to three charities: the Epping Breast Care Unit’s mobile screening unit, BLISS and SANDS neonatal charities.
We are delighted to announce the total amounts raised for charities at our two recent events. The Awesome Autumn Art exhibition in September raised an amazing £2,400 while the Andy Brush Quartet jazz evening added a further £1,300. What a fantastic result and we are so grateful to all those who came along and helped behind the scenes.

Two years ago we sponsored a guide dog, Barney, having raised the £5,000 that enabled us to name him. He is now in his final stages of training and we have had our last communication from Guide Dogs. It has been a pleasure to have seen his development and wish him and his new owner well.

Last year Gravelly Barn sponsored a Hero Rat called Magawa after Jane and Chris travelled to Cambodia. This amazing rat helps to clear mines and explosives from vast areas of the country that have, and continue, to kill and maim thousands of people in this poor country.
What better way to use some of the thousands of pounds raised here at Gravelly Barn than to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Millions of people throughout the world do not have access to a clean, functioning toilet so we are delighted to sponsor one in the Republic of Congo.
