Running for Young Epilepsy

 

 

 

|| July 17: 2018 || ά. Mr Andrew Williams, Mr Bob Gibbs and Mr Jon Nock representing Abacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions successfully completed the British 10k in London on Sunday to raise funds for charity. Running to raise donations for the Young Epilepsy charity, which tackles Epilepsy with children and young people across the UK. It delivers world class diagnosis, assessment and rehabilitation, as well as, pioneering research, specialist education, a helpline and national outreach services.

Abacus supplies and supports a power-assisted Gemini height adjustable platform bath at its specialist educational campus in Lingfield, Surrey. Starting at Wellington Arch, the team ran in sweltering conditions past several famous landmarks, including, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and finishing next to Trafalgar Square. Out of 15,000 entrants, official results show Jon finished in 1,743th place with a time of 00:50:38, Andy crossed the line in 3,214th place on 00:55:50 and Bob finished at 00:55:51 in 3,220th place. And that’s not bad at all while raising the desired funds for the cause.

Mr Andrew Williams, Abacus Marketing Manager said, “I have run a half marathon previously and play competitive cricket, however, I have never run a 10k race before, especially, in that heat. It was tough as I was carrying a back injury but running with Bob and Jon, plus the support from the charity pushed me on.

It was a really memorable experience and would like to thank everyone, who has donated to our final total of £750; it will make a significant difference to lots of young people living with Young Epilepsy.”  

Ms Martha Knight, Fundraising Co-ordinator for Young Epilepsy, joined several supporters from the charity on Embankment at the eight kilometre mark near Westminster Bridge. She cheered on all the Young Epilepsy runners and concluded, “Thank you so much Abacus for representing us; you continue to be incredible Ambassadors for our charity.”

Livability: More Than Welcome for Welcoming People with Disabilities

 

 

|| July 15: 2018 || ά. On Friday, July 13, Livability joined Archbishop Justin Welby, The Archbishop of Canterbury for an important conference at Lambeth Palace to discuss how disabled people can participate fully in the life of the church. The day’s theme considered what barriers disabled people can face in church life and what churches can do to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to take part and share their gifts and talents.

Livability has been partnering with Lambeth Palace in the development of the conference and have helped to shape the conference’s discussion agenda for the day. To mark the event, Livability is launching a new resource, ‘More Than Welcome’, to help churches consider their response to disabled people and equip churches to work for full participation in their setting. The report has been endorsed by Archbishop Justin Welby, who is the President of Livability.

Archbishop Justin Welby said, ‘’Without the presence, experience and skills of disabled people, we are incomplete. That is true in the church and in wider society. It is our calling to work to build the most effective routes to participation at every level. It is a privilege to be President of Livability and I’m delighted that this new resource will help churches not just welcome disabled people but enable them to participate fully in every aspect of church life.

The resource is a wonderful affirmation of all the good work churches are already doing across the UK. But it, also, provides practical and hopeful support to go further on the journey.

More Than Welcome is a new resource to guide churches in how to deepen relationships with disabled people and build a church where everyone belongs. Based on the idea of a journey, the resource is designed to help churches go through three important stages, from a place of welcome, to inclusion, to participation. The resource provides inspiration, guidance, stories and tips of things to work on to see people fully taking part.

Livability has launched the resource in response to the fact that lots of disability is unseen. The UK government recognises 11 million people as having long term illness, impairment or disability. That’s one person in six but much of disability is hidden or invisible. Churches must play an important part in responding.

Mr Mat Ray, Head of Church Partnerships, says, ‘We don’t realise that those sitting in the pews around us have, often, overcome barriers of all kinds to be there. Many people experience ‘hidden’ or ‘invisible’ disability in the form of mental illness or chronic conditions. Every church, that wants to offer a radical welcome needs to start by take time to understand these barriers. Together, we must work to create spaces of hospitality and belonging. Our hope is that ‘More Than Welcome’ will help churches to go on this journey.’

Ms Helen England, CEO for Livability, says, ‘’At Livability we know that our partnership with churches across the UK is a major way in which we can support disabled and isolated people.

Churches are so often at the heart of their community and play an important role in connecting people and tackling isolation. We are proud to have helped to shape and share in this disability conference at Lambeth Palace and look forward to continuing this vital work in ensuring churches become places of true participation for all.’’

The resource is available for free download from the Livability web site.

The British Food Fortnight September 22-October 07: British Food Fortnight Competition 2018 Opens

|| July 10: 2018 || ά. Love British Food is delighted to launch this year’s competition, run in association with Co-op, to find the best community celebration of British food.  Schools, hospitals, care homes, community groups, pubs, restaurants and whole villages, towns and cities are invited to take part during British Food Fortnight, which takes place on September 22-October 07.

Now in its 6th year, this popular competition has seen a tremendous variety of entries over the years from care homes, schools, village groups, councils, local authority caterers and many community leaders, who use British Food Fortnight as an opportunity to celebrate the food produced in their part of the country.  Previous winners include the cities of Peterborough and Bath, Emsworth market town in Hampshire and the village of Haslington in Cheshire, proving that large and small communities can take part.

Last year’s winner was the Ginger and Spice Festival in Market Drayton, that used the competition to establish a community celebration of their food heritage, particularly, the much-loved Gingerbread Man!

A superb group of high-profile judges from the food industry are involved in the competition this year, including, Mr Raymond Blanc, OBE, Ms Liz Earle, CBE, Ms Candice Brown and Ms Minette Batters, President of the NFU alongside founder of British Food Fortnight, Ms Alexia Robinson and Ms Breige Donaghy, Director of Delicious Food at Co-op.

“The competition gets bigger each year as increasing numbers of people and communities are realising how important it is to support our farmers, producers and local food business.  This competition is a super opportunity for communities to come together and appreciate the delicious and diverse food that is produced on our doorsteps.” said Ms Alexia Robinson.

“We are looking for entries, that educate people about British food and events, that strengthen the local community and provide a legacy, that can be built on year on year.”

Mr Raymond Blanc has been involved with the competition since it was launched back in 2012.  He said, “Last year the entries were incredible, from care homes, preschools and, even, a hospital roof garden got involved.  It was great to see so many varied events taking place.  The 2017 winner, Ginger and Spice Festival in Market Drayton already has plans to make the festival bigger and better. So, we’re expecting more inspirational entries this year.”

Ms Breige Donaghy, Director of Delicious Food, Co-op said, “As committed supporters of British produce, Co-op are delighted to be Official Partner of Love British Food and British Food Fortnight again this year.  This competition is a great way for communities, friends and families to come together to celebrate British food and drink, and I am looking forward to seeing this year’s entries”

As well as having a Love British Food Ambassador attend their event in 2019, the winners will be presented with the Love British Food 2018 trophy, £250 in Co-op vouchers, as well as, a case of Co-op award winning ‘Les Pionniers’ champagne and a selection of goodies from the campaign ambassadors.

Lloyds Scholars is a Great Scheme That Should Reach More Students: A Kira Swannell's Experience: This Year's Deadline May 25

 
 


||May 10: 2018: University of Birmingham News || ά. An scholarship programme run in partnership with Lloyds Banking Group is supporting student development, as well as, contributing to the local community. The Lloyds Scholars Scheme offers undergraduate students from lower household incomes a complete package of financial support, paid internships and the opportunity to develop employability skills. In turn, scholars commit to carry out 100 hours of voluntary community work each year of their degree. Lloyds Scholar 21-year-old Ms Kira Swannell, from Redditch, is studying Sports Science at the University. Once at the University she joined the Community Challenge society, a group run by other students on the Lloyds Scholars programme, that arranges a variety of one-off volunteering events throughout Birmingham, supporting groups from the homeless to the elderly, which served to inspire her own activities.

These are the vital kind of real initiatives connecting the students to the reality of the communities while they are studying so that they develop and nurture that link and bond with the community, reality and humanity so that they remember why they are at universities and why they are studying. We learn not for ourselves for a teacher's knowledge is lighting lights up in all other young minds, that one teaches. Yes, in the money based system a teacher gets paid but put this aside and see who this teacher's knowledge is benefitting: it is the others and take the single individual away from all that others and she:he stands alone and looks at the others and thinks: that's my family, that whom I am connected to and that where I come from. This is humanity. Community is the beating heart of this humanity. We are glad that such a programme has been developed and in operation by the Lloyds Group.

Ms Swannell's main involvement is Wellbeing Wednesday, where she and a group of ten other scholars visit a local school at Balham Wood in Rubery and run a variety of activities, that the pupils wouldn’t, normally, get a chance to do. Aimed at children from years seven to 11, activities include sport, art, fashion and music, as well as, tutoring for older pupils. Many students at Balham Wood are from deprived areas and so lack the opportunities available to many youngsters their age. Through Wellbeing Wednesdays, Ms Swannell and her team let these young people take part in activities they wouldn’t otherwise be able to, helping them build their confidence, pursue their hobbies and learn new skills in a fun and enjoyable way.

She said, “Most of the pupils we work with don’t have a lot of opportunities, even, simple stuff like extracurricular activities. With our volunteering, we try to arrange events, that let these kids have fun and learn a lot.”

Tutoring, also, gives the older students the support they need to pass their exams and build on their opportunities. When Ms Swannell first began tutoring maths as part of the project, many of the pupils struggled, getting many answers wrong. Seeing them progress and watching them score high marks across the board in a practice test at the end of term, was one of her high points from the year.

Keen to work with children after leaving university, she thinks volunteering has, also, had practical benefits for her own future. She believes that the programme has improved her communication skills and her leadership, enabling her to interact with people of all ages, keeping them engaged whilst imparting knowledge at the same time.

University Scholarship Co-ordinator Ms Jessica Cooper said, “The Lloyds Scholars programme plays an invaluable role in supporting the retention, achievement and effective progression into graduate employment of talented university students from low income backgrounds. Supporting talented undergraduates like Kira is an important part of our work and I am thrilled that she has gained so much from it.”

If you think you have what it takes to be a Lloyds Scholar, applications for this year has opened already and can be applied through the Scolarship website but mind the deadline: May 25.

Regine Humanics Foundation Begins Its Journey Today: The Humanion Is Now A Regine Humanics Foundation Publication
 
 


|| April 06: 2018 || ά. The Humanion was first published on September 24, 2015 and has been run, since that day, on a complete voluntary basis without any 'formal' or 'constituted' manner or form and, it was run on as a Human Enterprise, which is an idea of Humanics, in which, ownership is replaced by belongingship and, thus, in a Humanical Society, no one owns anything but everyone belongs to the whole as the whole belongs to everyone lawfully and equally and, it neither believes in nor makes money but human utilities, needs, aspirations, creativity, imagination and dreams are served without money, where everyone works and creates for all others as all others create and work for all others, thus, bringing in meaning and purpose to life along with it come natural justice, equality and liberty, that establish a true civilisation within the Rule of Law. And in one word, this system of human affairs management is called, Humanics and a society that runs itself in humanics is called a humanical society. Today, we have begun the process of 'constituting' this Human Enterprise, which does not exist in the current system, but the next closest thing to it, that exists in the UK Law is Social Enterprise. Therefore, today, Friday, April 06, 2018, we are beginning Regine Humanics Foundation, that is the 'Agency', that will lead, run, manage and develop everything, that The Humanion has been trying to do.

Regine Humanics Foundation is established by the Thinker, Author, Poet, Novelist, Playwright, Editor of The Humanion, Festival Director of London Poetry Festival and a Humanicsxian: hu: maa: neek: tian: One, that believes in, lives and exists by Humanics, Mr Munayem Mayenin, of London, England, United Kingdom. Mr Mayenin says, ''Humanics is a vision; people, may, call it, utopia, we, call it our Humanicsovicsopia; Humanics. Humanics is our philosophy, our faith, our conviction, our resolution, our way of existing, thinking, being and doing: to seek and try to do so in the determination that all we must do and be is to exist to advance the human condition. People, readers and agencies and organisations, from all across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the whole of the United Kingdom and Australasia, Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, from all walks and strata of life, have supported our endeavours, supported The Humanion and The Humanion Team, who volunteered their time to run things, since the beginning of The Humanion and long before that, when other things, that are now part of The Foundation, were developing. Nothing has changed in terms of the nature and value of what we have been seeking to do.''

''But the founding of The Foundation brings it all in a solid foundation so that we can keep on building this 'vision' so that it keeps on going regardless of who come to take the vision-mission of The Foundation forward. The Foundation runs along with time and along with the flowing humanity. This is the dream, this is the vision, this the hope in founding this Foundation. And, in this, we hope and invite all our readers, supporters, well wishers and all agencies and organisations to support our endeavours to build something, a Human Enterprise, which we are in the process of registering as a Social Enterprise, as a Community Interest Company, working for the common good of the one and common humanity. No one makes or takes profit out of The Foundation, which now runs The Humanion and everything else, that is part of it. The Foundation, once registered, will have an Asset Lock, which means that in any event, should The Foundation dissolve itself, all its existing assets shall go to a similar Social Enterprise. Therefore, we invite everyone to support The Foundation, support The Humanion in whatever way they can. And, there are endless number of ways people and organisations can support The Foundation and The Humanion.'' ::: ω.

Rare Genetic Diseases: Amplify Hope for Those Who are Left on Their Own

 

|| February 07: 2018 || ά. Rare Genomics Institute:RG has announced the publication of conclusions from their Amplify Hope Study in the Interactive Journal of Medical Research:IJMR. The paper, Engaging a Community for Rare Genetic Disease: Best Practices and Education From Individual Crowdfunding Campaigns, discusses their findings from the programme created to help rare disease families crowdfund to pay for needed genetic testing. “By empowering families, engaging our community and connecting directly with providers for needed genetics services, we hope to shorten the diagnostic odyssey and get these children on the road to answers and, hopefully, one day, a cure.

We are so grateful to receive the support of the John Templeton Foundation to do what we do best, support our rare disease families.” said Ms Romina Ortiz, MHS, COO of the Rare Genomics Institute. Rare Genomics Institute was founded in 2011 to fill the health care gap for undiagnosed rare disease patients and supporting research in rare diseases. RG helps rare disease patients find a diagnosis, treatment and pathway to a cure by individualised access, co-ordination and execution of genetic sequencing and research services with RG and its affiliates. RG, also, supports rare disease advocacy by fostering an online community of rare disease patients and supporting rare disease research through a yearly grant competition.

RG hopes that these efforts slowly push science and care forward to meet the needs of the patients affected by rare diseases. Because of the funding from the John Templeton Foundation, this programme was developed and delivered for rare disease families free of charge. Partners on the project included two life sciences technology leaders: Ambry Genetics and Baylor Miraca Genetics Laboratories and three leading pioneers in crowd funding: CrowdRise, Indiegogo Life and YouCaring.

The rigorous 30 day programme trained families on topics ranging from: preparation before launching their campaigns, reaching out to networks, leveraging social media and video content and understanding different crowd funding platforms The Amplify Hope study included a series of free online live webinar training events from top experts around the world, live phone assistance and coaching from experienced experts.

Of the 86 study inquiries, 11 participants submitted the required forms and launched their crowd funding campaigns. A total of four of the 11 campaigns raised their goal amounts within 30 days. We found that social media played an important role in all campaigns. Specifically, a strong social media network, an active outreach process to networks, as well as, engagement within the study all correlated with a higher success rate.

About The John Templeton Foundation: The John Templeton Foundation serves as a philanthropic catalyst for discoveries relating to the deepest and most perplexing questions facing humankind. We support research on subjects ranging from complexity, evolution, and emergence to creativity, forgiveness, and free will. We encourage civil, informed dialogue among scientists, philosophers, and theologians, as well as between such experts and the public at large. In all cases, our goal is the same: to spur curiosity and accelerate discovery.
In order to catalyze such discoveries, we provide grants for independent research that advances the mission of the Foundation. Our grants for public engagement help people worldwide engage the fruits of that research and explore the Big Questions.

Exeter Where Exception Exists Naturally in Every One Every Day: Believe You Have a Dream and It Shall One Day Welcome You in Its Reality: Do: Making the Exceptional Happen Campaign

 

|| February 05: 2018: University of Exeter News || ά. The entire Universe and everything in it, excluding, sadly, the half of the humanity part of it, the mind-parts but, strangely, not the physiology-parts for they follow laws like everything else, follows Universal Laws at absolutely every nano-second of every day. And, so, let us, call all this existing by the Universal Laws as Good and this Good unfailingly happens every day in this Universe. There is no failing nor is there any variation. If we humanity are anything as this Universal Good, as this Beautiful, this Magnificent Good of the Universe than we should be good every single micro second of every day. And, therefore, being and doing good is not exceptions but natural and ever so easy. We should ask ourselves, does oxygen, ever, fail to help things burn? Does Hydrogen, ever, fail to burn? Does the air, ever, fail to sustain and support life? Does water, ever, harm life, when drunk in its natural quality as required? Does the earth forget to spin? Do seasons forget to follow the laws? No, they do not? Than, if we are good, this humanity, than why is it that we ask and seek to be and do good only on a specific day or days?

If we are good we are good and, so, we keep at it. It is not a task, it is not a job and it does not and can not require us to be paid for being and doing it nor should we expect to be getting 'rewarded', 'awarded' or given a 'prize' for being and doing good for the mentioned oxygen, hydrogen, air, water, earth and season, none, expects nor gets paid a price or prize for their being good, following the Universal Laws. Being and doing good at all time is what humanity is about and, if, we are not good and we do not want to keep on doing good then what are we and why are we here on this earth? How do we do this? Believe that this goodness has its Origin in and within us, that it resides and exists in us and this alone drives us to be and do human, to be and do good. And, now, let the Spring arise like the Nile, which is, at its Source , a tiny, almost , invisible spring and, yet, how that becomes a 'mighty' flowing wonders, feeding life, encompassing the entire Earth! Does this Nile, ever, ask for payment? Does it expect or get rewards or prizes? Does it whinge and fill itself with utter self-pity that it is being and doing good and no one notices it and no one offers it any prize or award or reward?

No. Why not? Because good requires no reward to be good for the light requires nothing for being light. It is so. Says who, you, may, pose. Says the Universe for without this light the entire Universe remains in the realm of eternal 'oblivion' or non-existence for no one, who can see, can see all the magnificent glory it contains, that exist in this Universe. And, for all the Universe to become 'visible' the 'good' of light can not but be. Good requires no reward because it good itself and, if, it does require a reward, it can not be good to begin with. And, all this, begins somewhere, like the Nile, in small and it does not take millions of humans to begin that small: one will do, who will call on and out and another will come along and, having seen two 'mad humans' running to raise money for helping some disabled children have a play centre, more and more will get inspired and join this 'mad' run and soon there will be people speaking about some madness becoming like an 'inspirational cascade' and its magnetism becomes so powerful it pulls every one towards it and everyone joins in with tears in their eyes for now they can see how beautiful they all have been all along.

And in this and in this way people bring out that good out of themselves and gather together and they become stronger and they begin the journey of that 'Nile' and, as it begins, this Spring, begins to pull more and more flowing 'springs' towards it and soon this becomes a mighty, mighty Nile. Here, we present, the University of Exeter's Making the Exceptional Happen Campaign, that aspires to raise £60 million and 60,000 volunteer hours by 2020. And this big ambition, this big dream and aspiration began small but it has, already, made a great start and working on with greater faith, conviction and determination. As part of its works the initiative has supported two local students in their studies, among many other actions. The University of Exeter Staff Giving Fund was launched just over twelve months ago, as part of the Making the Exceptional Happen Campaign. Its aim was to provide two full three-year bursaries to support deserving students from the region, who wished to study at Exeter. Because of the generosity of University of Exeter staff across all campuses, that goal was realised.

Ms Lauren Cowie, studying BA History on our Penryn campus and Ms Daisy May Taylor-Knowles, studying BMBS Medicine at the Medical School at St Luke's, are now in receipt of a bursary to support them during their studies. "I truly cannot convey how thankful I am to be awarded the Cornwall Staff Bursary. This bursary has alleviated the financial stress on myself and my parents and will now enable me to take full advantage of the excellent opportunities the University provides. Your support will enable me to focus on my studies, give me time to explore my interests in volunteering and tutoring and attend my societies." says Ms Lauren Cowie.

"You have lightened my financial burden, which will allow me to focus more on my studies and project work. I look forward to keeping you updated on my progress and I hope, one day, I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me." says Ms Daisy May Taylor-Knowles.

The Making the Exceptional Happen Campaign: At Exeter, our vision is to be a global 100 research leader and create graduates of distinction within a community of the most talented and creative minds.

To achieve this, our aims for 2021 are:
10: maintain our top 10 UK league table position
100: be in the top 100 world league tables on a sustainable basis
1,000: submit 1,000 researchers to the Research Excellence Framework 2020
Our new Campaign ‘Making the Exceptional Happen’ will play a vital role in achieving this.

Our Campaign aims to:

Raise £60 million in philanthropy
Secure £100 million from research grants and corporate partners
Secure 60,000 volunteer hours
Philanthropy on this scale will be transformative for our students and our research. But we need your help to make it happen.

Your gifts of money and time will increase the worldwide impact of our research and education in Devon and Cornwall.
They will:
Bring the very best minds to the University to lead major research, helping solve some of the greatest challenges of today.
Offer our students an outstanding experience in their studies and in their lives; from the lecture theatre, to the lab, to the sports-field, preparing them to become graduates who make a real difference in the world.
The Campaign aims to grow our research in four key areas:

Health
Sustainable Futures
Understanding ‘Living Systems’ to tackle disease
Enriching Society and Culture
As well as supporting students through our themes of Tomorrow's Leaders and Sporting Success.

Securing the future: Compared to many of its peers, the University of Exeter is a young institution and the size of its endowment reflects this. The current endowment of £33.1 million is split into three funds: two of them restricted, meaning they can only be applied in pre-specified ways. The Exeter Forever endowment was established as an unrestricted permanent endowment to reap the benefits of long-term investment potential. A key Campaign goal is to grow the Exeter Forever Fund by £01 million by 2020.

Mind the Reality: Mind the Community: Support Your Local Community Shops: Support The Piano Shop Bath

 

|| January 29: 2018 || ά. The Piano Shop Bath, surely, is in Bath and it has been there since 1980 and been serving people of the local communities and have supplied and repaired pianos to and of many people and musicians. This Bath based piano shop specialising in selling and restoring pianos is exploring the connection between art and pianos with a series of collaborative exhibitions across 2018. The Piano Shop Bath, which was established in 1980 and has since grown from housing 15 pianos to now having over 80 on display and for sale, collaborated successfully with a number of artists last year and will continue to explore the rich history of the piano with various artists and sculptors. Shops like these are local community bases, which are facing the increasing 'abandonment' and wherever, one goes one finds shops, often, those, that are the life blood of communities and community lives are closed, shut down, boarded up or are about to be. Stop before such places and ask: where are we or our children going to go as they grow up and grow older if these places no longer exist? It is time we wake up and do something, every single person and make a choice and support these vital organisations. Go to the local piano shops, the local bookshops, the art and craft shops, the corner shops, the cafes, the local markets. Among such place, one, may, have, such a unique name, that the word does not, even, exist in English, such as, Baathesqianromana and, you wonder, what the person naming the cafe as such was thinking? But where is it, you, may, wonder.

Well, here, the readers, reading this piece, one of them would know the answer to this question because one them would leave her existing shop and go and set up this cafe and she may, take this name up or she, may, make up a new one, taking this as her inspiration  and soon she is going to start this new cafe, somewhere is Bath or Bath Spa or some other places nearby and call it Baathesqianromana or Something Elsebath and this she or he will know to stick to just one Cafe and not run to join the conveyer belt and become a machine-chain and they will not only sell coffees and hot drinks, cakes and cookies and all that but they will offer spaces for child minders and mothers and fathers to sit and drink and play with their children, they will sell old books, they will sell old music sheets and buy old records and sell them, too. They will help local community groups by offering them free space to have meetings, they will allow local musical groups and small community theatre groups, poetry groups to use their space in the evening to organise events, performances, readings and recitals. They will let the local artists use their cafe and run art exhibitions, every day, each artist, getting a fixed number of days. They will offer any community group all support they can. The will let people come and join them for their birthday celebrations, their anniversaries and, they will be ever welcoming to the endless flow of visitors and tourists, to show the spirit of humanity.

They will run the cafe but forget that they sell coffee and soon the entire country will speak about them and the people, who work there. And they work their for 'not one day and one week' but they work their as if that is their home. This is what community is about and life is about and humanity is about. And this Piano Shop is such a place. Do not let them disappear from the reality and support them. Do not buy pianos from 'machines'. Go to the real Piano shop and speak to the people, who run and work at this shop because they not only love pianos and music but, also, have spent their life dealing with them and learning about them and they are the people, who could offer you human advice and support you. But along the way, what you get is much more than the piano or the piano repaired: you get the music of humanity for 'free'. If this music does not exist in our lives, in our families and in our communities, in our realities, we are already dead. For where is any humanity left in our physiologies, that have no humanity, no reality, no connection, no bond, no relation, no human warmth left in them? Mind the Reality: Mind the Community: Support Your Local Community Shops: Support The Piano Shop Bath.

Mr Jon Kelly, the owner of The Piano Shop Bath, said, “Following on from an exceptionally successful series of collaborations with artists last year, we are excited to continue to explore pianos through art displays and other collaborative endeavours. These exhibitions aren’t just about our store and what we have to offer, it’s, also, about bringing people together to engage with and experience something thought-provoking and exciting.

“Last summer we supplied and installed 18 street pianos in Bristol, which have been transformed by local artists for the public to play. It’s a great way for those, who, may not, normally, be around these types of instruments to get involved with projects like this, so they, too, can appreciate the eternal charm and character and pianos. We hope that these exhibitions will raise the profile of pianos and encourage as many people as possible to get involved with playing them.”

The shop went to great efforts with their Christmas window display, which saw them collaborate with sculptor Ms Julieann Worrall Hood, who delivered visually striking artwork incorporating over 1,000 recycled piano keys over the thre inter-connected windows on the store-front, which spans across three buildings in central Bath.

Sculptor and artist Ms Julieann Worrall Hood, said, “The exhibition was a wonderful opportunity to recycle beautifully crafted piano parts, some of which are over 100 years old, into new pieces of artwork that, hopefully, offer a multi-sensory experience, that crosses the boundaries between what we see, hear and feel.”

The shop’s main endeavour is the art and craft, that go into traditional restoration and the rear of the premises is home to an extensive workshop, where traditional and more dynamic methods of design work are employed.

Customers who visit the shop will, also, be delighted to discover a collection of gorgeous hand-painted pianos.
