At our March meeting our outgoing chairman for 2004, Bill Brinkley presented a cheque of £600 to his charity for last year. Bill’s charity was the Disabled Artists Group of the Garwood Foundation. Receiving the cheque from Bill is Philip Aling, a lively twenty year old quadraplegic. Philip displayed his pictures and gave a short talk about the art group of which Bill brinkley is the chairman. Whilst Philip needs individual attention with some of his paintings he told us that painting gave the members of the art group a means of self expression and achievement.
