The Devonshire Square Easter Tree, dedicated to the Honeypot Children’s Charity, is back in our Western Courtyard, and will be on display until 15th April!
The Devonshire Square Easter Tree is a social art installation hosted annually by Devonshire Square to raise awareness of the Honeypot Children’s Charity, and encourage online donations in aid of this wonderful organisation.
The hundreds of eggs that decorate the tree have been hand painted in naïf style by using a range of painting techniques including water, oil and acrylic paint, along with natural dyes from red and yellow onion skins.
The Honeypot Children’s Charity is the only charity in the UK that is solely dedicated to supporting young carers between 5-12 years and every year they support almost 2,500 young carers across the country.
Young carers are children who provide care and emotional support to a parent, a grandparent, or a sibling who is ill, disabled, suffers from a mental health conditions or substance abuse.
We would like to warmly invite you all to purchase one less Easter egg this year and make an online donation in aid of the Honeypot Children’s Charity instead.
Donations can be made through the charity’s official website: https://www.honeypot.org.uk/donate, quoting “Devonshire Square’s Easter Tree Appeal”.
