You may or may not know this, but Hagar and I run a photography photo business called PhArtHaus – capturing the world that passes you by.

Photobox offered to produce one of our landscapes on canvas for us and we decided that we would offer this fantastic canvas print as a raffle prize at a quiz  local to me raising funds for the charity Friends of PICU.

PhotoBox is Europe’s leading online digital photo service with over 30 million members. They  help people create memories and keep them alive through Photobooks, cards, wall decor, mugs, t-shirts, and more. They have built an active and extensive online community that sparks much of their innovation  and are always finding new ways to engage and share the joy of PhotoBox.

My favourite PhArtHaus print came out spectacularly well.


The PhArtHaus canvas – Pimms on the beach – 100 cm x 76 cm – was very impressive and went in a small way to support the fund raising of just short of £1000 on the night! Friends of PICU are a registered charity who support the Peadiatric Intensive Care Unit at Southampton General Hospital who provide first class care and treatment to 900+ critically ill children every year from all over the South of England and the Channel Islands.

Friends of PICU aim to support the children and their families by providing vital equipment and services that are not normally provided by the statutory authorities. The charity maintains the family accommodation on the unit which has recently undergone a major refurbishment programme.
The charity is also funding a psychologist for a period of 3 years to provide help to children and their families. The psychologist provides support for patients, families and staff on the Unit. Many people find that the experience of time on PICU can be traumatic. Their psychologist can help people to discuss their feelings and help them to reconcile these feelings.
The quiz was lots of fun and hugely supported by the local community, which was wonderful to experience. My team The Mentalists came 4th and I delighted that we could help support such a fantastic cause through PhArtHaus, the blog and Photobox. I love it when a plan comes together.
