Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity are set to hold an exclusive preview evening at Cedar Court Hotel with local artist Jos Haigh.

The event, which will be on Friday 27th November, will be an opportunity for the public to experience the vibrant artwork that Jos has kindly donated to HHCC, and to meet the artist herself while enjoying mince pies and mulled wine.

The public will also be able to purchase the stunning paintings, with 100% of the sale price going directly to HHCC, as well as Christmas gifts and HHCC’s recently launched 2021 calendar, all in aid of supporting Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust (HDFT).

Harrogate Hospital and Community charity will be holding an exclusive preview evening.

The charity raises money to help the Trust go the extra mile in providing excellent care and has recently funded colouring and art materials for patients staying at Harrogate District Hospital during the pandemic.

Jos said:

“I followed a scientific career but have always painted in my spare time for family, for friends and for me. I paint wildlife, dog portraits and breezy flowers in bright, bold and flowing colours, trying to create striking pictures that bring joy.

“I chose to donate these paintings after the extremely tough year HDFT has had dealing with a global pandemic as well as the usual challenges that healthcare brings. I wanted to say a ‘rainbow’ thank you to my local NHS Trust for all it has done and continues to do, so I hope these paintings will bring some colour and joy in what continues to be a difficult time.”

This exclusive preview evening will be free to enter, although tickets will need to be booked in advance by emailing hdft.hhcc@nhs.net. Jos’ paintings are also available to view and purchase now onhttps://hhcc.co.uk/art/ with all proceeds going straight to HHCC.
