Barking & Dagenham College’s Photography Programme Leader donates work to National Brain Appeal event

David Bennett, Photography Programme Leader at Barking & Dagenham College who work is featuring in the charity sale A Letter in Mind

Barking & Dagenham College’s Photography Programme Leader is amongst high profile artists, illustrators and designers and celebrities supporting the National Brain Appeal this November by donating work. 

David Bennett is donating two pieces of work to A Letter in Mind for the second year running. His works, along with many others will be sold at £85 a piece via an online gallery.

This year’s theme is ‘Making your Mark’. The online exhibition will showcase people’s visual responses to these questions: After a year in and out of lockdown, many of us have had time to reassess our place in society and in the world. How do we make our mark in this different world? Do we want to continue life in the same way as before? Do we feel strongly about another role, cause or way of living?

Celebs and artists taking part, including Chris Riddell, Lizzy Hobbs, Andrew Grant, Laurie Chetwood, Amin Taha, SJ Axelby, Luke Morgan, Morag Myerscough, Tom Hammick, Mark Entwisle, Andrew Marr and Harry Hill!

The National Brain Appeal raises funds to advance treatment and research at The National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery and the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology – together known as ‘Queen Square’. All proceeds from sales will support vital projects at Queen Square.

The online gallery preview begins on 2 November with online buying launching on 4 November
