Easter Charity Show | Painter's Gallery | 5th - 16th April 2015.More than 20 prominent artists are contributing their work to support an incredibly worthy charity, Australians for Women's Health (www.A4WH.org). They are doing wonderful work in Nepal where the incidence of Pelvic Organ Prolapse has been the highest in the world and is 100 x the incidence in Australia. An Australian surgeon, Dr Ray Hodgson, has spearheaded this charity and made 15 trips to Nepal at his own expense operating on these women and training local doctors and midwives. He has sometimes been accompanied by other medical staff from Australia who have also volunteered their time and with him have done both curative and preventative work. Join us for a Champagne Soiree:
