Art sale raises money for local charity, BEfriend

The sale of Ali Moosavi’s photograph, Make a blank valuable by putting it in an exquisite frame, this week has benefitted Ealing based charity BEfriend. The charity matches friendly and reliable volunteers with people who have become lonely and socially isolated. Volunteers provide company and companionship and help those they befriend feel engaged with the world again, either through bringing hope and warmth in with them or by helping people get out. During recent months their services have been even more important and they have extra pressures in delivering the required help in a safe way.

Rachel Hill, Director, commented that all the money raised from the sale of Ali’s photograph will go towards sustaining the service.

Ali Moosavi is a member of London Independent Photography, a community organisation for professional and amateur photographers, representing the Ealing satellite group. The LIP activities are designed to bring together photographers with different interests and levels of expertise who wish to develop their personal approach to photography, improve their skills and gain recognition for their work.

OPEN Ealing hosted the sale. Two striking examples of Ali’s work have been on display in the Dickens Yard arts centre.
