HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE CAPTAIN OF OUR HEARTS

Captain of Our Hearts

When we couldn't go outside
The Captain did
and walked for us
and showed us all the way




Darren Baker, an artist globally renowned for his astonishing realism, has become one of the UK’s most collectable painters since his remarkable portrait of the Queen which was unveiled by Princess Anne at Westminster Abbey in 2011.

Darren has painted Prime Ministers, Royalty and the sporting elite, and his celebrated works hang in collections from 10 Downing Street and the House of Lords to St James’s Palace. Darren’s art has attracted critical and popular acclaim – described by The Sunday Times as ‘thrilling’ and ‘virtuosic’.  

And now Darren is honoured to paint a Hero who Walked For Us and Showed Us The Way and presented his painting to Captain Tom Moore this week.

 

 

A Beacon of Hope to So Many ...

Captain Tom Moore, a 99 year old Army Veteran, who has become not only the world record breaking fundraiser as an individual for charity but,  he is fast to become, we believe,  a National Treasure who is about to celebrate his 100th birthday who each day, on waking, he first thinks about getting his legs to walk before thinking of the fight the NHS and frontline people are challenged with each day.

AND

Today In recognition of his incredible fundraising achievements for #NHS charities, Second World War veteran Captain Tom Moore has been promoted and appointed as the first Honorary Colonel of the Army Foundation College, Harrogate.  CONGRATULATIONS!

Darren, an artist who himself is no stranger to raising awareness and funds for charities, with the Mental Health Charities he holds close to his heart, is donating this original and all proceeds from the original and his limited edition prints to the NHS and The Royal British Legion.

"Our country and all our nations, we're all so generous in all sorts of ways. But it's for a super purpose," he said."Nurses, doctors and all the back-up workers, they deserve everything we can give them."  
- Captain Tom Moore.




The outpouring of gratitude to Captain Tom Moore and the brave heroes of frontline staff is immeasurable.  We will continue to help Darren and his Art publisher Portfolio Fine Art raise much needed funds where all proceeds will be donated to the NHS and The Royal British Legion.
