From the Studio Floor has supported various charities and good causes including Children in Need, Middlemore Foundation, New Zealand National Burns Centre and Kidz First Hospital Auckland.
This year’s Cambridge exhibition raised funds for locally based charity Cam Sight, with at least 20% of the proceeds from all art sold being donated to fund their work.
Cam Sight is based in Cambridge and Chatteris. It offers advice, information and practical support to children, young people and adults with a visual impairment. Cam Sight provides emotional support and counselling with monthly social groups across Cambridgeshire offering information and advice, excursions and home visits from the community team and volunteers, providing help and company.
Its two Low Vision Centres display and demonstrate a wide range of equipment from magnifiers to talking clocks and provide advice and training on specialist and mainstream technology. Groups for pre-school children, 6 to 12 year olds and teenagers provide fun, skills and opportunities for parents/ carers to gain support and meet each other.
From the Studio Floor provided a great opportunity for visually impaired artists to exhibit their work, helping Cam Sight to engage further with schools, businesses and the wider community in raising the profile of the work of the charity.
