Avani (UV) who turned 16 in April should have been sitting her GCSE’s this summer but due to Covid-19, like students across the country she won’t be taking exams this summer. Instead she decided to use her Easter holiday to produce artwork which is uplifting and could be sold to raise funds for the NHS. Avani, who is a GCSE Art student is also making artwork for the wards of Great Ormond Street Hospital to cheer the children's spirits and brighten up their wards.

Avani explained what else she has been doing to keep busy. “On my art Instagram account, I have also launched #yellowhope. I chose to do this to spread some hope around and reposted the work of others on the account. I chose the colour yellow as it represents hope and I will shortly create a digital mural, after contacting the NHS - they have said that they would send it around digitally to their patients and staff. Therefore, achieving my aim of spreading some hope round the NHS! It’s been great fun, I’ve had submissions from girls in Year 4 at LEH Juniors as well as my friends from Year 11 and some great ones too from Year 8 students at St Catherine’s School. Hopefully, it will look great once complete and put together.”

Avani has already raised over £1200 for the NHS with a target of £2000. You can view her work on https://www.instagram.com/avani.s_art_/ and if you’d like to donate, please click through to her Justgiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/avanibhalla
