Kitty’s Launderette team fundraising run for local charity Love, Jasmine

We’re coming together to support one of our own team members and her small local charity here in Liverpool.

Kathy is co-founder of Love, Jasmine, a charity which supports family members directly affected by the loss of a child by providing practical, emotional and respite support.  

Love, Jasmine was set up in 2016 following the sudden death of Kathy’s own daughter Jasmine, who was only 6.

The last year has been extremely challenging for us all, even more so for small charities who have seen all their normal fundraising events cancelled, but with the need for their services being just as much in demand. 

So we’re getting involved and joining Kathy in her virtual running/walking event which is taking place over the weekend of 17th/18th April. 

We would really appreciate it if you could help us to support Love, Jasmine by donating what you can on our Just Giving Page and sponsoring the laundry team participating in this event. 

Or, why not also get involved yourself and sign up to take part and raise some much needed funds:

Visual artist needed

Kitty’s Launderette are looking for a local artist to help brighten up the outside of our community launderette. We have two large metal shutters which are currently unpainted and a bit drab. 

We would love something that celebrates our values of creativity, community, and care for the environment. However, we are open to any proposed artwork and are happy to be surprised! 

To fee for the commission, inclusive of materials is £1500 and will take place in spring 2021.

Please send us 100 words about your idea and either a pencil or digital sketch of your proposed design or artwork. Plus 2 images of your previous work.
