Events for the third annual charity week will take place from June 2-10. Among the events is the Yellow Brick Road art exhibition between June 4-16 at Michaelhouse Centre, Trinity Street. This showcases the work of established and emerging artists and has the support of Kettle’s Yard. It is the brainchild of volunteer Lois Gillie-Andrews. There is also a ‘Children helping children’ art exhibition at Byard Art gallery between June 8-10.

Supported by Citrix and Domino Printing, the events are all aimed at raising as much money as possible for local children’s charities.

Ms Wilkinson said: “Some children don’t have the greatest start in life. Children, whether they live in poverty, have a mental health condition or disability, are our future talent pool. To give back to those less fortunate than our own children is something that drives everyone involved in the CCCW.”
