A NORTH Waltham charity has unveiled its first art exhibition – and it has a very personal touch to it.

Basingstoke and Deane Mayor Councillor Dan Putty opened the exhibition at The Willis Museum, in Basingstoke, featuring paintings compiled by children and their families who use Sebastian’s Action Trust, which runs a respite home called The Bluebells, in North Waltham.

Organised as part of the trust’s 10th anniversary celebrations, the exhibition features artwork that expresses what the charity means to children and their families.

Jane Gates, chief executive of Sebastian’s Action Trust, said: “This is a wonderful collection of beautiful art.

“We are very excited about our 10-year anniversary, and this collection shows just how important the trust has become to so many families with children who have life-limiting or serious illness.”

Cllr Putty said: “It is a beautiful exhibition. It all came from the heart of the users of Sebastian’s Action Trust, and real feeling flows through these paintings.

“I was very moved by it and appreciated what people feel about Sebastian’s Action Trust and The Bluebells.”

The exhibition, which is available to view free of charge at the museum, runs until May 5.
