While 12 year old Noah Jones who has cerebral palsy, was unable to go to school because of COVID-19, he enjoyed time painting. His father reached out to artists on Instagram to ask for their help to finish the paintings.
What resulted was an amazing collaboration with 250+ artists from around the world who added their art to Noah's backgrounds. 'Background Bob' as Noah is now known was thrilled to see his paintings exhibited.
The family have put the artwork together in a book, Background Bob, with all proceeds going to Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals Charity.

We were delighted to help support Sharmila Collin's efforts to raise much-needed funds for Cure EB. Shamila's daughter Sohana has Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a genetic skin-blistering condition.
'We beat the £5000 target for my Regents Park Marathon, and with gift aid raised just under £7900 for Cure EB! Storm Alex made it one of the rainiest days I’ve ever run in but it kept me cool enough to complete the 9.7 laps of Regents Park, not just for Sohana but for so many others in need of a treatment for EB.
The EB Graft trial has gone well with its first grafting this Autumn, and the funds raised will help us move forward with this and other important projects. So huge thanks from me and all of us at Cure EB'
