JM Finn were very proud to sponsor the private view of this year’s Art for Cure exhibition which they did in partnership with local law firm, Birketts.
Held over the May bank holiday weekend, the three day event saw in excess of £400,000 of art and sculpture sold which helped raise a record £220,000 of funds. The monies raised will be donated to vital national breast cancer research, as well as valuable local services in Suffolk which support those touched by the illness which affects one in eight women.
Art for Cure was founded in 2014 following Belinda Gray’s diagnosis of breast cancer, aged 47. She, with the help of her friend and fellow art lover, Sally Ball organised the first Art For Cure art and outdoor sculpture show at her home and gardens in Suffolk to raise money for breast cancer research. During the early planning of the event, sadly Sally was also diagnosed with breast cancer.
They have now raised over £520,000 by holding this annual exhibition, which has also become a fixture in Suffolk’s social scene.
