The Giant Cat Project is a fundraising effort in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital, in memory of little Maymunah, who passed away aged only 5. Anne Kilroy has asked a number of artists and crafters - including me - to donate cat-themed works for an auction that will help raise money for GOSH.
Those involved include Kitty Valentine, Mr. Martin, Halo Jones and many others from the Tea Rooms. Aldona and I will also be making a special cushion cover for the auction. An exhibition will be held at St. Botolph's Church, Aldgate High Street, EC3N 1AB from November 7th to 11th. The opening night will be on November 7th, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Do come along then if you can, or visit during the week and see if there are any artworks that you might be interested in.

I'll leave you with a photo of the tireless Anne Kilroy looking cute in her hi-vis vest shaking a bucket beside the eponymous Giant Cat. The Cat was painted and decorated by the young students of Sir John Cass Foundation School.
