The exhibition, featuring both established and new artists, raises funds for UK Youth, which, founded in 1911, improves social mobility by providing high quality services for young people aged 9 to 25.
The charity primarily works with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, from a wide range of religious and cultural environments, family settings, academic ability levels and geographic locations across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Over the past year UK Youth has been able to do some incredible work. They have grown their network to support 1.5 million young people across the UK, with 94,913 young people benefiting directly from their delivery; they have unlocked £5.5 million for the network of local youth organisations; 86% of the young people on programmes face at least one personal barrier; 64% of the young people on their programmes increased key skills such as self- confidence, communication and resilience.
Antonia Consett, senior investment manager at JM Finn’s Leeds office commented: “We are delighted to be involved in such a successful exhibition that raises important funds and are always pleased to see so many of our friends, colleagues and families attend. We hope to continue the partnership for years to come.”
