‘I was able to select and purchase a number of prints that we just would not have been able to consider acquiring without the prize money. [Our Prints] are all now providing some much needed colour and interest in our Chemotherapy Day Care department at Charing Cross Hospital – in fact the Rose Blake works were situated in a consultation room, and the staff there have requested they are moved to a larger room to be seen by more people as they like them so much!’
