Help For Children Auctions NHS-Inspired Art To Raise Funds For Vulnerable Children

The current lockdown imposed by the U.K. government, and indeed governments around the world, impacts people in multiple ways, but one side effect of the directive is that the risk to children that they become subjected to child abuse is significantly increased. Help For Children has announced a new initiative to help raise funds for vulnerable children in the United Kingdom, auctioning off new artwork by London-based artist Rebecca Leigh. The piece, inspired by the extraordinary work by nurses in the current corona virus pandemic, is titled ‘we shall meet again’, as referenced by Queen Elizabeth II’s historic speech on April 5th 2020 to the British public.

“Whilst many of us in the alternative investment industry are making the most of the extra time we’re able to spend with our children, it’s important to recognise that there are, sadly, many children in the U.K. either at risk of encountering child abuse, or at risk of enduring more abuse,” said Jack Inglis, HFC U.K.’s recently appointed Chairman. “The funds raised from the auction of this generous donation by Rebecca will help HFC U.K. to provide funds to child abuse charities in the U.K. which are on the front lines of our own fight to rid the U.K. of child abuse.”
