Visitors to Van Gogh Alive UK support Mind in Bradford’s vital work

Visitors to the stunning Van Gogh Alive UK exhibition in Bradford donated more than £4,000 to Mind in Bradford.

We were selected as the event’s charity partner for its three-month stay at Regency Hall in the city.

It was well-documented that Van Gogh was plagued by his own mental health issues, often reflected in the expressive and impulsive style of his work, so Mind in Bradford was the obvious choice for Van Gogh Alive UK when selecting its charity partner.

A total of £4,279.50 was raised for us at the tap-to-donate points throughout the multisensory exhibition and through online ticket donations. That money will all be spent in the Bradford and Craven districts to support people experiencing mental health difficulties, so no-one needs to struggle alone.

We also hosted a special night for 150 local business representatives, Bradford Council members, faith leaders and health care workers at the Grade II listed Regency Hall, which gave the opportunity for them to find out more about the vital mental health services we offer people of all ages across the district.

CEO Helen Davey said:

We are very grateful for the generosity of visitors to this amazing exhibition, and for being selected as its official charity partner.

Van Gogh Alive UK has moved to its new venue in Brighton.
