Millie heading for Wimbledon College of Art

May 18, 2012

Art student Milie is heading for the prestigious Wimbledon College of Art. Having successfully applied to The Helen Foundation for a bursary to help with the purchase of art materials, Millie was delighted when the box arrived from the art supplier Jackson’s Art Supplies, who provided a very generous discount on the sale. Thank you so much, Jacksons!

Millie emailed us to say: “I would just like to start by saying a massive thank you to the charity for giving me this opportunity. Things like this just don’t happen to people like me!

Thank you so much for awarding me with such an amazing bursary that has provided materials for the final major project of my current foundation course as well as kitting me out with oil paints and canvas for the beginning of my new course at Wimbledon College of Art this September.

Not only has it been such a luxury being able to use such a wide range of top quality paints which, in itself, has contributed to creating higher quality paintings, but also lifted a huge weight of worry off my shoulders! Times are tough and the cost of art materials is daunting, so with THF help it’s a relief to know that I’ve got a kick start when I get to art school!

I can only hope that all my hard work and determination to succeed will pay off in the not so distant future and I will be able to return the favour because I cannot stress enough how much you’ve helped me.”

We wish Millie every success in the future.
