*** This is TOP SECRET! Please don't let them know and spoil the surprise! ***

As you may know it's David and Jean Finch's 50th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday 29th May 2021. (I really don't know how they've managed to put up with each other for so long! :)

Jean has organised a BBQ for the occasion at their home in Kent, but we thought it would be a good idea if all their friends and family clubbed together this year to buy them something really special for their anniversary present.

We are therefore commissioning an oil painting of their wedding photograph from 50x years ago!

The above photograph is being used, but please note that it will ONLY be David and Jean being painted! It would cost a lot more and take much longer to produce if he painted everyone in the photograph, so he's extracting just David and Jean for the commission.

The professional painter will copy the details of their original wedding photograph and produce a high quality 20" x 24" oil painting on canvas. We'll then choose a good quality gold frame, as it's their "golden" anniversary!

The artist requires approximately 3x weeks in total to produce the painting, and along with the frame it will cost approximately £350 in total.

Small monetary gifts towards the painting will be much appreciated, so we can give something special, but which hasn't cost a lot for any one person in particular.

If we manage to raise more than £350, any excess funds will go towards buying alcohol and food for the BBQ on Saturday 29th May 2021, so you will all enjoy it anyway!

Please dig deep and give as much as you can. As you may know, Jean fell over and dislocated her shoulder and fractured her arm in July 2020, and has just had shoulder replacement surgery at Maidstone Hospital. She's getting much better now she's had the surgery, but unfortunately she hasn't been able to get out or drive her car anywhere, and is therefore really looking forward to her BBQ party on Saturday 29th May!

Thank you for helping to pay for David and Jean Finch's 50th Wedding Anniversary present.
