Artist Ted Ford is opening up his Camargue Studio for one day only to raise funds for Andy's Children's Hospice.
Long-time supporter Ted Ford is opening his artists' studio for one day only to raise funds for the children's hospice.
Ted, an award-winning gardener and talented artist, has regularly invited the public to view his beautifully-maintained gardens over the years.
Now he is bringing his Studio Camargue - a garden studio where he paints - outdoors for one day only.
The event takes place on Saturday, July 30 from 11am to 3pm, and garden furniture will be on sale as well as his artwork.
Admission is £3 on the gate at 4 Camargue Avenue, Waltham, and a donation will be made to the children's hospice.
Ted, 87, is a retired building company owner and is married to Cynthia. The prolific craftsman most recently created a bench in memory of a late friend, and often creates displays marking public events, such as the Queen's birthday.
The couple have raised hundreds of pounds for the hospice, and Ted has given hours of his time to the charity, including landscaping the hospice's gardens.
Please support Ted and Cynthia by attending what Ted states is their last ever open day. The couple are bringing the open days to a close to enjoy more time together.
