Gordon Glick, Deputy Executive Director, Partnerships and Philanthropy, UNICEF UK said:
“We are delighted that Sleeping with Art have chosen to raise funds for UNICEF UK. The Covid-19 pandemic is the biggest and most urgent global crisis that children have faced since World War Two. The world will only begin to recover from the pandemic when people in lower-income countries have access to vaccines, tests and treatments. UNICEF is ensuring that no one is left and is on a mission to deliver 2 billion vaccines around the world this year. Funds raised will protect those most at-risk, help struggling health services get back on their feet and ensure that millions of children can go back to school.”Gordon Glick, Deputy Executive Director, Partnerships and Philanthropy, UNICEF UK
Multi-million pound cars will be displayed among works of art showcased throughout the grounds of Lemore Estate and in private and public rooms.
