Annual art event has healthy outlook

The Friends of Eastbourne Hospital holds its autumn exhibition and sale of local art at St Andrew’s School in Meads Street this weekend.

The event will be open from 10-4pm on Saturday October 24 and Sunday October 25. Admission is free.

Visitors will be able to enjoy approximately 250 pictures on display. Local artist, Alan Everard, has donated a painting entitled Sunset Mooring as a raffle prize; tickets to win the painting will be available at the exhibition.

Inspirational local art teacher, Josie Tipler, will be giving a free painting demonstration at 2.30pm on Saturday, so please do come along and watch her in action.

Funds raised by this event will go towards the FoEH special project for 2015, the Da Vinci Surgical Robot, which will mean minimal invasion, better outcomes and a shorter hospital stay for patients requiring major prostate cancer surgery.
