Retired teacher sets up art gallery for children

Alumnus Mike Fleet has set up an art gallery to give children additional activities to do during lockdown.

Children submit their artwork to the gallery weekly, and points are awarded according to age and achievement. The children also have the opportunity to win a weekly prize.

Mike hopes that following the lockdown, they will have a gallery for friends to visit and donate to charity.

The alumnus, who is 82, is also volunteering with a local care home, offering his time to speak to residents over the phone.

Mike graduated with a degree in Physical Education in 1961.
