My Lovely Postcards
An exhibition and auction of postcards in aid of Beth’s Bursary Fund, which supports nurses to receive further training and education in palliative care.
What is My Lovely Postcards?
My Lovely Postcards is a community art project set up by Sobell House, alongside the Foreman family, to raise funds for Beth’s Bursary Fund. Budding and professional artists are invited to submit a postcard-sized artwork (148mm x 105mm) which is then sold to members of the public through an art exhibition and auction.
What is the Beth Bursary Fund?
Established in 2017 in loving memory of Beth Foreman, Beth’s Bursary Fund supports nurses to receive further training and education in palliative care. Continuing professional development is key to providing the very best care, so by providing nurses with opportunities to gain the specialist skills they need, we’re able to make a long-lasting impact on the quality of palliative care here at Sobell House Hospice and further afield. To date, Beth’s Bursary Fund has contributed an incredible £59,939 to further training for nurses. Thank you so much to all of our My Lovely Postcards artists for being a part of that effort.
