Sitting With Jane is proud to be working in partnership with The Ark Cancer Centre Charity, a special local charity that will benefit from the sale of all the sculptures from the trail in autumn 2017. The Ark Cancer Centre is a much-needed cancer treatment centre is to be built by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in north Hampshire, integrating conventional and supportive cancer care for local people. Everything will be provided under one roof in an uplifting environment that will enhance the care and support that is given.
By supporting Sitting With Jane, sponsors and visitors are helping to raise funds for this important local project that will leave a long lasting legacy for Basingstoke and the surrounding area after the end of trail.
“There is no doubt that Sitting With Jane will attract a great deal of attention locally, nationally and internationally. The 24 professionally designed BookBench sculptures will be landmark attractions during the event to mark the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, and those involved in sponsoring and purchasing them will be contributing to a longer lasting legacy”, Merv Rees, Trustee of the Ark Cancer Centre Charity
