Bexhill boy displays work in virtual gallery thanks to children’s charity
A Six year old boy from Bexhill is proudly displaying his artwork in a virtual gallery thanks to a children’s charity that brightens the lives of seriously ill children across the UK by granting their wishes and providing ongoing support.
Khodi Moon suffers from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and has endured gruelling chemotherapy treatment.
In 2019, the Rays of Sunshine charity granted Khodi’s greatest wish to visit Disneyland Paris with his family.
His artwork ‘Seaside’ will be displayed in the gallery and is inspired by his love of spending time at the beach with his family.
Created with the help of Moyosa Media, award winners in digital technology, the gallery aims to celebrate the magical bond between Rays of Sunshine and its beneficiaries, in addition to recognising the charity’s patrons and supporters.
Each child has depicted their own interpretation of the theme ‘sunshine, happiness and laughter’ and many of the pieces of art were created during group creative workshops with Rays of Sunshine.
Lindsey Bennister, Chief Executive Officer of Rays of Sunshine, said: “We’re really excited to be launching the Rays of Sunshine Children’s Art Gallery filled with wonderful artwork by our beneficiaries.
“Every piece on display was created by a child living with a serious or life-limiting illness and the result is a collection of art as unique and inspiring as the children themselves.
“During the pandemic, Rays of Sunshine has been committed to continuing to support families across the UK, and provide joy and hope, and this gallery is no exception. Bringing together the children and families via virtual art sessions has resulted in some incredible pieces of art, which we are very proud to display.
“We’re incredibly grateful and thankful to everyone who made this possible, including our generous sponsors, Moyosa Media and, of course, all our very talented artists.”
