    Art for Action event on 15 October was a great success!


    Celebrities, novelists, artists and chefs were inspired to get creative for children’s charity Action Medical Research.  Around 180 people had answered the call for original postcard-sized works of art to raise money to help save and change children’s lives, with the theme of childhood memories.  A similar number attended the event enjoying fizz and canapes, the search for masterpieces and the very exciting auction!

    Famous artists Grayson Perry and Maggi Hambling CBE, singer/songwriter Tony Hadley of Spandau Ballet, Radio presenter and journalist Libby Purves, best-selling crime writer Peter James and model Vita West were among those creating 5” x 8” artworks.

    The creations were displayed on industrial fencing supplied by Breheny at the beautiful events venue Copdock Hall.

    More than £8,000 was raised for Action Medical Research which has been funding medical breakthroughs since it began in 1952 and is currently supporting work around meningitis, Downs syndrome, epilepsy and premature birth, as well as some rare and distressing conditions that severely affect children.  The Ipswich Group organised the event: Chair Karen Last, Diana Johnson, Jeanette Brierley and Krystyna Smithers (Jackamans' Practice Development Manager). Jackamans is proud to have co-sponsored such a successful and worthwhile event. http://www.action.org.uk/art-action
