FedEx Supports Charity Art Exhibition Featuring Paintings of Robbie Williams

Back to News

LONDON, January 14, 2014 – Robbie Williams, the best selling British solo artist in UK history, is the theme of a charity art exhibition for which FedEx will transport 70 valuable paintings from Milan, Italy to the UK and back free of charge. The works of art, which all depict Robbie Williams, will be put on show in his hometown of Stoke – on – Trent, at the Burslem School of Art

The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Trust in Stoke, of which Williams is a patron, is set to benefit from voluntary donations paid by the exhibition visitors. The charity needs to raise £2.5 million next year and it is hoped the exhibition will help the hospice reach their target. The exhibition is part of Stoke – on – Trent’s weekend of celebrations to mark Robbie’s 40th birthday this year.

“FedEx supports charitable organisations around the world and we are proud to be able to help The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Trust,’’ said Trevor Hoyle, VP Operations UK & Ireland, FedEx Express. “It’s a privilege to provide our services for the benefit of such a charity; and one that is based so close to one of our hubs.”

Melanie Williams, head of High Value Partnerships for the Hospice said, “We are thrilled to be involved in this exciting event celebrating our patron Robbie Williams’ 40th Birthday. RWFanFest is a weekend of events and activities taking place in Robbie’s hometown of Stoke-on-Trent and will be raising vital funds to support the Hospice in caring for children with shortened life expectancy and their families. We are delighted to be working with FedEx on a unique exhibition of original artworks created by a fan of the singer as a tribute to his life and music, and look forward to welcoming visitors to this unique event.”

The art exhibition is one of a number of events and activities taking place over the RWFanFest weekend and more information can be found on the charity website www.donnalouisetrust.org

FedEx will deliver the artwork to Burslem School of Art on 24 January before returning the artwork back to Milan at the end of February.
