Further Information: Founder of local charity, Kids for Kids, Patricia Parker MBE, is opening her house and garden in Dorking on 10th-12th August as her personal effort to raise enough food to feed 100 children, and their animals, facing starvation this summer in Darfur. “Please join me” says Patricia “It’s going to be a lovely weekend, with something for everyone. There will be beautiful stalls as well as a chance to discover my garden – which is hidden at the top of Cotmandene. It is hard to believe the High Street is so near!” There is famine in Darfur right now because the harvest has failed for the second year running. This is the first time Kids for Kids will have provided Emergency Aid, but Patricia says, “I cannot bear the thought of children starving. We are planning a really fun event, with a very serious purpose”. The weekend will open with a Private View for the Art Exhibition by Patricia herself on Friday 10th. Patricia has exhibited in London at the Mall Galleries, Blackfriars Gallery, Llewellyn Alexander Gallery and the Society of Women Artists and has pictures in many collections, including Trinity College Cambridge. Also on view will be paintings by Robin Radclyffe whose colourful pointillist technique is right up to the minute. On Saturday the 11th we will be having a Garden Party. Enjoy over an acre of private gardens with sculptures, hidden corners and herbaceous borders, plus an Exhibition of Original Art, Caribbean food by BoxFood, a Jamaican street food company, and designer stalls! Traditional Polish pottery, potted plants and flowers, exclusive beauty products by Arbonne, jewellery, and handmade silk flowers by Fiona Bliss – to name a few! We look forward to seeing you there!
