Gordon Glick, Deputy Executive Director, Partnerships and
Philanthropy, UNICEF UK said:
“We are delighted that Bart Kuykens and Sleeping with Art
have chosen to raise funds for UNICEF UK. The Covid-19 pandemic is the biggest
and most urgent global crisis that children have faced since World War Two. The
world will only begin to recover from the pandemic when people in lower-income
countries have access to vaccines, tests and treatments. UNICEF is ensuring
that no one is left and is on a mission to deliver 2 billion vaccines around
the world this year. Funds raised will protect those most at-risk, help
struggling health services get back on their feet and ensure that millions of
children can go back to school.”
Multi-million pound cars will be displayed among works of
art showcased throughout the grounds of Lemore Estate and in private and public
