Laurie Todd Foundation to raise funds for Kingston Hospital research project with ‘Sculpture Garden Open Day’

18 June 2021

The Laurie Todd Foundation, who are funding a joint research project between Kingston Hospital and Kingston University, investigating the role of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) in the development of upper gastrointestinal cancers, are hosting a ‘Sculpture Garden Open Day’ on Thursday 24 June, 2pm – 5pm, at 5 Neville Ave, KT3 4SN.

The open day will showcase sculptures by Michelle Castles, Adam Aaronsen, Paul Cox and others, who will be donating a percentage of their sales to the Foundation, which was established in the name of Laurie Todd, who died six weeks after being diagnosed with Oesophageal Cancer in August 2018.    

Tea and homemade cakes will be available and included in the entry price.

Director of Kingston Hospital Charity, Rob Aldous, said: “We are so grateful to The Laurie Todd Foundation for their continued support. They recently raised over £6,000 with a virtual charity walk, and the Sculpture Garden Open Day is another great way to support the Foundation – any donation will make a huge difference to continuing the vital research of Kingston Hospital and Kingston University.”
