I’ve never been to this annual event before but my wife Jo has been helping out for several years now and this time was the official photographer (!) I went as a lunch time guest (I don’t shoot) – but did donate a sculpture to this tremendous cause.
What an amazing day it turned out to be! The Red Arrows did a private display….very moving due to the absence of Red 4. The team honoured and remembered him by leaving his space empty and flying with only eight planes, the gap so obvious in the formations.
Over lunch we heard some truly moving accounts from one of the doctors from GOSH and one very brave boy who stood up to tell us about his operations and treatments at GOSH which saved his life. Everyone was inspired by these amazing people, and reminded how important the hospital is to so many poorly children.
Overall the day raised some £280,000, despite the recession….And I was very proud to have been able to contribute with the sale of my sculpture – Confidence.
