The Maritime Art Group has during the last few years, formed relationships with registered charities with whom the Group has felt a natural bond. At most exhibitions, the Group invites one of these charities to include a display, information and collection boxes. The Group also sets aside a commission on sales by way of cash support.
Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
Being a maritime painting group, there has always been a strong connection with the sea and the RNLI was a natural choice as a charity partner. The Group has a particular connection to the Lymington Branch arising from exhibitions at Bucklers Hard and has also supported the Dorking Branch during exhibitions at Denbies Wine Estate in Surrey.
Help For Heroes.
Exhibitions in East Anglia, e.g. at Framlingham, have supported this important charity. The bond arises mainly from the age group of most Members, many of whom have someone close who have been damaged by armed service.
The National Trust Neptune Project.
The Groupís new venture at the Birling Gap and Seven Sisters Information Centre in East Sussex brought it into contact with another natural partner charity. Most of the Groupís work is centred around our coast and public access is seen to be a worthy cause to support.
