Childhood memories have captured the imaginations of more than 60 UK artists for a special charity exhibition set to be held in Leyton.

From Barbie to Buzz Lightyear, Memorabilia Charity Art Exhibition for Great Ormond Street Hospital recalls precious moments from childhood, conjuring an atmosphere of nostalgia and reintroducing gems from the past.

“We owe so much to GOSH, they saved our little girl, Noemi’s life,” says artist and organiser Carne Griffiths.

“Through their actions my wife Claire and I were inspired to do something positive. We wanted to create a sense of nostalgia with this show, to remind us of our inner child. Hopefully those feelings will raise money for the incredibly important work GOSH does.”

  • Memorabilia is on Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, July 7, from midday until 5pm, Norlington Road, Leyton.
