Exhibition of artwork from west London care homes

Home news

The Mayor of Hillingdon, Councillor Allan Kauffman, will be at the opening of an exhibition of art created in care homes across west London on Monday 30th September.

The paintings will be on display in the newly-refurbished lounge of The Burroughs care home in West Drayton and will include work from residents at the home and at other Care UK care homes including:

Amberley Lodge       in Purley

Franklin House        in West Drayton

Laurel Dene              in Hampton

Whitby Dene             in Eastcote

Manager Josephine Thomas said: “Art is very popular in all Care UK homes and often artists come in to work with residents. Charlie Joy visits The Burroughs on a regular basis and he is helping to frame and mount the residents’ work.

“There are some very bright and colourful pieces in the exhibition and I know residents find it a very effective way to communicate their feelings and ideas, as well as capturing subjects that have caught their interest.”

During the summer, The Burroughs and Franklin House held their own fundraising barbecues and during the reception, the teams will present the Mayor with a cheque for the cancer charity Macmillan – one of the charities benefiting from his Rainbow Appeal.

Franklin House manager Nompilo Ndlovu said: “We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon back in the summer when Cllr Kauffman kindly joined residents, their relatives and our team for a fundraising barbecue. Macmillan is a charity close to many of our hearts and we were delighted to be able to raise funds for it.

“The team at The Burroughs also held a barbecue, but with a seaside theme, and they created their own artificial beach in the grounds!”

The two homes raised £261 which Care UK then boosted to £361.
