The submitted artworks will be displayed inside Attic’s new Beckton facility and showcased at an exhibition this summer. Local Beckton artist Matt Ponting has been commissioned to create a bespoke art installation which will be inspired by the children’s artwork and also displayed at the exhibition. 

For each artwork received, Attic will donate £5 to Richard House Children’s Hospice in Beckton, which supports families from several London boroughs including Newham, Barking, Dagenham, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Hackney. Attic will also be donating £500 worth of art and craft supplies to the school with the most entries. Following the exhibition, Ponting’s artwork will also be donated to Richard House.

Kathryn Elvin, Head of Corporate Engagements and Partnerships at Richard House Children’s Hospice comments: “Beckton is a vibrant community. Attic Self Storage’s valuable donations will play a vital role in helping local families with a life-limited child to access therapies, respite, community support and friendship to help them enjoy positive memories together and an improved quality of life.”
