The Winchester Portrait Exhibition took place in April this year and raised over £10,000 for three local charities, The Murray Parish Trust, Friends of PICU and Winchester Cathedral. The exhibition, organised by artist, Nadine Collinson and photographer Michael Butters, showcased over one hundred portrait photographs at The Great Hall in Winchester. Featuring both Sarah Parish and James Murray (co-founders of the Trust) the photographs were of people who have made an impression on local life through their work and activities. The Murray Parish Trust were presented with a cheque for £3609.34 at a presentation evening at Lainston House, with the same amounts going to Winchester Cathedral and Friends of PICU.
