Calendar Raising Funds For Established Social Enterprise
Dec, 21 2020
It’s that time of year again when the shops are full of calendars fashioned by the latest series of celebrities. But for the more sophisticated amongst us we may wish to purchase something that connects with the outdoor world and by buying such a calendar we add to the longevity of an established social enterprise in Preston city centre.
The Birley artist studios in the locality of Preston has launched a 2021 calendar to raise funds for The Larder. Work by 12 artists, illustrators and designers who live, work and study in the city will feature collectively throughout the calendar.
Nature is the dominant theme and includes work from the following artists:-Kathryn Poole, Simon Plum, Gavin Renshaw, Faye Spencer, Lauretta Rapley, Nick Rhodes, Guild Goods, Secret Industries, Wensdi Made, Jessica Dent, Edie-Mea McCartney and Stephanie Fletcher.
Social enterprise The Larder has done some excellent work this year that hasn’t gone unnoticed. Ranging from delivering hundreds of meals to vulnerable residents in Preston, to teaching cooking classes to young people in families from low-income backgrounds, among other projects.
Stephanie Fletcher, co-director at The Birley studios expressed her appreciation for the artists involved and applauded the efforts of The Larder,
“Purchasing a calendar this year is a great way to shop local. We’re so pleased to be able to showcase just some of the creative talent in or from the city, and are grateful to everyone for contributing work. The Larder is doing great work in not just tackling local inequality, but providing education, cooking skills and a sense of community during tough times.”
Please note:- a limited number of the calendars are being printed and are available to buy at a cost of £10 plus postage. All profits will got towards The Larder. You can find details of how to order by accessing the following website address:
