Music and art exposition at Chute Lodge – Fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Society and Wharf Kids.
Join us on October 1st for a cultural evening of music and art at our beautiful Grade 1 Listed Georgian House in Wiltshire. We are raising money for two charities making an impact both at home and abroad.
The Alzheimer’s Society is the UK's leading dementia support and research charity for people affected by this challenging disease. They work tirelessly towards finding a cure and offer valuable support to those living with dementia, as well as their families and carers.
Wharf Kids is a grassroots charity helping children affected by Ebola in Freetown Sierra Leone. Kate photographed the end of the Ebola epidemic last year and was deeply moved by the children’s stories and the inspiring work of Wharf Kids to secure their futures.
