MORE THAN 70 CHILDREN and their parents took part in Family Art Day on Saturday 7th July at the Hub - a free community event where children got an opportunity to draw and paint from their imagination on a given theme, along with their parents who were given different themes. A Pop-up Art Gallery was created around the hall and visitors came and looked at the paintings. Every participant received a certificate and a prize to acknowledge their ingenuity and encourage them to continue their passion for arts and creativity. Dr. Shrobona Bhattacharya, Chair of CamCare UK, explained, “Talents within the community must be recognised and cared for. CamCare UK helps in community cohesion and wellbeing of its population, it helps young people and adults to improve their skills and capacity to meet local needs through science, technology, arts, cookery, fundraising and leadership.” Mrs Parul Burman, artist and co-organiser, said, “Children must be given an opportunity to expand their imagination and creativity and I am sure more kids and parents will benefit in the coming years through these activities.” Jakir Chowdhury of Cam Spice Indian restaurant raised and handed over a cheque for £200 to support Kendall, who is battling cancer, by selling lamb biryani, onion bhajis and samosas at the event. Charlotte's Ice-cream of Cambourne was also at the event.
