Lend Us Your Hands Fundraiser Paint Jam For Nepal

On Sunday at the Queen of Hoxton rooftop bar in Shoreditch, amid the glorious sunshine Lend Us Your Hands, a charity fundrasier comprising a day and night of art, music, crafts, food and cocktails all in order to raise vital funds for the Tsum Valley region devastated by the Nepal Earthquakes took place. A vast part of the day and certainly our main interest in this fun day for a great cause was the Paint Jam which took place, with the live painting organized by The Hidden Streets Of London and with all works contributed by the artists available for sale with proceeds going towards funds raised.

The event was very much a success, with by mid-afternoon the lovely rooftop venue being crammed to full capacity and everyone enjoying the fine weather, the superb live painting and the food and drinks on offer. The artists were in fine spirits taking a rather casual approach to the days festivities, donating their time and works and in the process collectively offering up a range of artistic styles and works to view upon. All in all it was a superb event, set in a fantastic location and was certainly nothing short of a success, we don’t know how much money was raised, but it’s hard to imagine that all expectations weren’t matched or almost certainly bettered by the impressive and vast crowd the event pulled in.
