Merry Christmas from everyone at Bridging Arts

A very Merry Christmas from everyone at Bridging Arts. And a huge thank you to everyone who has worked with us - and supported us - over the past year.
On a very mundane, but practical note, if you do find yourself doing some last minute online shopping there’s a way you could help out.
Easyfundraising is as simple as the name suggests – you can raise FREE donations for Bridging Arts .
Log on to easyfundraising.org.uk. Then click where you'd like to shop (Amazon, John Lewis, M&S have all signed up) and access their website through the site.
Once you've ordered, the retailer makes a donation to your chosen good cause. You can now support Bridging Arts.

It doesn't cost you a penny - it's the retailer who pays.
Here’s a link so you can get started:

African headwraps - watch this space


Great to meet Jos with Kemal Ahson (Bridging Arts trustee) at the Azawala Gallery in Elephant and Castle, London, yesterday.  We talked about the patterns on African headwraps and possibly running a competition for new designs in the New Year.  Watch this space....
