The panel measuring just 1.5m x 0.5m was designed by John Maddison and fabricated by Gary & Mosaic Restoration team in our workshop between April – October and finally installed end of November. The complex and very detailed commission was carried out in both the ‘in-direct’ and ‘direct’ method using a mix of Venetian glass, gold and marble tesserae. This has been a most enjoyable project and well received.

I have chosen to raise funds for the Natasha Allergy Research Foundation.  Founded by Nadim and Tanya Ednan-Laperouse following the tragic death of their daughter Natasha to a severe allergic reaction in 2016, the vision of the Foundation is to make allergy history.  Their goal is to prevent and eradicate allergic disease, starting with food allergy, creating a world that is safe for all individuals. They fund food allergy research, the only charity in the UK dedicated to do this, and campaign to improve policy / law and raise awareness of the dangers of food allergy.  Please visit their website at www.narf.org.uk to learn more and follow them on social media @NatashasFoundation (Insta and Facebook) @NatashasLegacy (Twitter).

Their successes already include achieving the first major change in allergy legislation with Natasha’s Law being implemented in 2021 – ensuring that full ingredient labelling and allergen information is included on all pre-prepared food to go (‘pre packed for direct sale’).  In May 2022 they will be announcing their first major allergy research project – to enable the first treatment for food allergy to made available to everyone in the UK via the NHS.  As Nadim and Tanya say: “We want to ensure the needs of people living with allergy are met in a meaningful way and to offer a real hope that will change the lives of all those living with this life-threatening disease.”

I have the personal experience of family members who have food allergies and the impact it has on their lives. I understand the urgent need to carry out research and am confident NARF with the recent and forthcoming developments / announcements that they will make good use of any money I can raise.

Lovely geometric and encaustic tiled entrance porch which sadly had numerous loose and damaged tiles, uneven and door sticking. We traced, carefully lifted, transported back to our workshop, reconstructed and installed.
