‘Through Our Eyes’ our celebration with the Royal Engineers Museum

A big thank you to everyone who joined our celebration of ‘Through Our Eyes’ at the Royal Engineers Museum on Wednesday 6th May. What a great turnout and truly lovely to share our exhibition with so many friends and family – you could feel the joy! We hope you look after your thumb print mementoes – who knows whose thumb is now in your care.

The fantastic team at the Royal Engineers Museum, as always, looked after us with drinks, nibbles and speeches and had the great idea of  an auction of the art at the end of exhibition. So a date for your diary – Friday 10th July – details to follow!

As Colette, one of our wonderful KAB volunteers said, “I thought Wednesday was a great success, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and there was a lovely happy atmosphere. The paintings looked great, lovely to see them all beautifully exhibited. Made a change from seeing them actually worked on. They looked very impressive. Am sure you were equally pleased and you deserve it”. Thanks Colette.

And lovely Ray, one of our talented KAB artists, “CONGRATULATIONS. What a wonderful exhibition and what a wonderful turnout. I am sure you were well pleased, even chuffed by it all. An excellent night. Thank you”. Cheers Ray.
