At Bon Coeur Fine Wines, we like to support local events and charities. Each year we chose different charities to work with. In 2013 we are proud to be supporting these charities: British Heart Foundation, Game & Wildlife Conservational Trust (GWCT), New Lights and Art For Youth.
British Heart Foundation
James and Samantha Goodhart took part in the Yorkshire Charity Clay Day hosted by Lord Bolton at Bolton Hall Estate on Monday 13th May 2013. The day was organised by C. Richard Jackson MBE DL in aid of the British Heart Foundation. Over £40,000 was raised from the day including in the auction.
Game and Wildlife Conservational Trust - Charity Number 1112023
Located in the heart of North Yorkshire, we are passionate about the preservation of the countryside and support the GWCT. THe GWCT are a charity that develop scientific research to enhance the British countryside for public benefit. Over the years they have reseached and developed game and wildlife management techniques. Providing advice and training to farmers, gamekeepers and land managers, they aim to improve the biodiversity of the countryside. www.gwct.org.uk
On Thursday 8th November, James Goodhart attended the Gentlemen's Dinner at Swinton Park for the GWCT and also supported the auction.
New Lights - Charity Number 1141002
New Lights is a charity that formed in 2010 helping promote emerging young artists in contemporary painting in the North of England. New Lights offers fantastic opportunities to artists in the critical stage of their development, offering workshops, lectures and viewings. www.newlights.org.uk
Art For Youth
The Art For Youth North event that we supported in October 2012 helped to raise money for UK Youth - Charity Number 1110590. The exhibition enables both established and new artists to show their work and raises funds for the leading youth work charity, UK Youth. With our support, 2012 was a record show, selling over £50,000 worth of art and making £25,500 to help young people across the UK. www.artforyouthnorth.co.uk
We are only a small company and therefore cannot sponsor all of the charities that we would like to, but we do offer a special charity rate on wine for charity events.
