Foundation Patron, Mike Tindall, Rugby World Cup winner has teamed up with renowned artist, Ben Mosley (www.benmosleyart.com), who was appointed as an official artist for Team GB earlier this year, to support some amazing charities during this difficult period. Ben has produced an amazing and totally unique painting which pays tribute to all the key workers that have helped to save so many lives during this time of crisis. All proceeds of the painting will be split between three charities: NHS Charities Together, the charity supporting our NHS and two charities that are significant to Mike and need our help as they operate through these hard times: The Cure Parkinson’s Trust and the Matt Hampson Foundation.
"The Stadium of Life" is explained by Ben: “The NHS and the key workers have done an amazing job saving lives and keeping us fed and safe since Covid-19 became a national and global pandemic. I wanted to create a metaphorical piece of art that celebrated and acknowledged their sacrifice and efforts. I appreciate that the painting shows a crowd of people coming together in a stadium, which is not something we can do at present physically, but it is the spirit of the public and the feeling of gratitude and pride that we have for our NHS and brave key workers that I wanted to capture. I felt a crowd celebrating in a stadium was the best way I could depict this in a way that people could relate to. Sports stadiums are where heroes are made and celebrated throughout all of time. In the painting I wanted to give the nurses, doctors and all the other key workers a platform where they could be remembered by future generations as heroes for saving countless lives in years to come.”
