Looking for some Christmas gift inspo? Well, look no further. This gift is both, um… aesthetically-pleasing and working for the greater good by raising money to allow a crucial space for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to access the arts.
“We’re proud to announce a charity project supported by Sadie Frost at The Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation and fashion photographer Debbi Clark in partnership with London’s first female [very LGBTQI-friendly] garage, Spanners With Manners,” the team behind the calendar told DIVA.
“Our ambassador Sadie Frost worked with Debbi Clark, CEO and Founder of The Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation, in a collaboration with Spanners With Manners to create a brilliant calendar featuring Sadie and the Spanners With Manners team.”
The official 2020 calendar is a charity project which supports young people living in disadvantaged areas by giving them a gateway into the arts and/or the media.
One hundred per cent of sales from the (rather saucy) calendar will be donated to the Foundation and will support a mentoring project aiming to provide skills in both the arts and media to young people at risk of gang grooming and becoming involved in crime.
“The programme is supported by the Foundation with the aim of becoming a three-year project providing a safe place for young people where we hope they’ll be inspired to pursue a career in the arts by giving them access and opportunities to a brighter future,” added photographer, Debbi Clark.
