Svalbarði was delighted to recently gain some new admirers of its refreshing bottled polar iceberg water. We sponsored a fundraising event for the Sir Hubert Von Herkomer Arts Foundation, a Camden-based charity, which educates children from primary and secondary state schools with after-school art classes. The Foundation’s 2017 Annual Exhibition took place on 5th April at Alon Fine Arts Gallery in Mayfair and was attended by VIPs and celebrities. The high-profile guests enjoyed the crisp, clean taste of Svalbarði while raising money for a good cause.
Svalbarði representatives were on hand to answer questions about the polar iceberg beverage as attendees quenched their thirst at the invitation-only event. People sipped the refreshing water as they viewed works of art donated by famous photographers and artists such as Rankin, Banksy, Terry O’Neill and Iain McKell.
The works were sold and auctioned to raise money for children who wouldn’t usually get a chance to have an art education. Debbi Clark, founder of the Foundation and organiser of the annual exhibition is also a professional photographer whose work was among the other items donated. The exhibition is currently in its 4th year and has been a huge success.
Helen McCrory is the Patron of the Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation. She is the award-winning actress and star of Peaky Blinders and strongly believes in arts education for children and allowing children to express themselves freely. The Foundation provides children who would not normally have the chance to have an arts education with the inspiration and tools to develop lifelong artistic passions.
Ms McCrory attended the exhibition with her husband, actor Damian Lewis, and spoke about the Foundation’s mission to supply children with the tools to develop lifelong skills and interests in the arts. Other celebrities who attended the prestigious event included TV presenters Alan Carr and Melanie Sykes and actor Stephen Mangan.
The chic presentation of the bottled water is a work of art in itself and generated plenty of interest. The innovative and distinctive Svalbarði bottle is made from sustainable materials by craftsmen in Spain and the Czech Republic.
We believe the arts are a vital part of education and are proud to be sponsors of such a worthwhile event. We wish the Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation continued success with their fundraising and excellent efforts to promote arts education for children.
The refined taste of Svalbarði is available exclusively at the luxury department store Harrods, the Harrods website, or outside of the UK you can purchase it online.
