The A-list both from the art and entertainment worlds are cutting, colouring and styling their ‘HARE’ to raise money towards two new operating theatres at Great Ormond Street Hospital. The HARE Styling celebrity canvases appeal is the brainchild of the famed hairdresser Michael Van Clarke whose daughter Angelica was given a lifesaving operation at Great Ormond Street Hospital when she was just two days old.
Now 15 years old, Angelica has drawn a hare to help raise funds for the hospital that saved her life. The hare has been reproduced on A4 canvases which have been sent to well-known names in the public eye inviting them to create an original artwork too. These will be auctioned for charity both on-line and at an exclusive ‘Hare Ball’ at London’s Dorchester Park Lane on the 26th of May.
Distinguished names include: Tracey Emin, Cheryl Cole, Jamie Oliver, Stella McCartney, Twiggy, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, Terry Venables and HRH Princess Beatrice, The Duchess of York have all already returned their canvases with many more expected ahead of the March deadline. All of the canvases will be displayed at a Central London gallery exhibition. Most will be included in a hard bound book printed to raise further money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
