Some of The Pantry’s Team (and friends) are cycling 118km (73 miles) on Sunday 28th June raising money for The Medway League of Friends. They are an important local charity who, under normal circumstances, would donate several hundred thousand pounds worth of equipment to local NHS services. Everything from furniture to fully equipped organ transport cars. As you can imagine though, circumstances are far from normal at present, so we’ve decided to help in their fundraising.
The trip will be from Chatham’s Historic Dockyard to the Cutty Sark in Greenwich (and back). At present there’ll be four people taking part and hopefully the weather won’t be too hot!
You can sponsor the ride here and there’s no such thing as a stingy donation.
On the 15th April, World Art Day, we’ll be welcoming local artist Rehana Khan and a collection of her work to The Pantry for exhibition and sale.
Rehana has lived in Medway for 35 years and art has always been a part of her life, particularly when she became unwell her health & well-being was improved though her art.
The exhibition, A Celebration of Creation, features artwork organised into two categories: Diverse Abstract Art and Arabic Art.
The materials used vary from recycled materials, coloured pens, crayons, paints, and sequins. Rehana said, “I am inspired on a daily basis by my environment, whether it is my home life, the outdoors or family festivities. Art is a celebration of life and has been therapeutic, enabling me to find the inner peace I have been searching for.”
Rehana’s exhibition and art sale will be held at The Pantry, Fort Amherst, Chatham on Wednesday 15th April, World Art Day. All proceeds raised will be split between The Medway League of Friends and charitable work in Pakistan.
