ZOE KAKOLYRIS “Zoe’s World”

Zoe’s World is a magical and quirky world, full of life and humour. Her wonderful naïve style is completely unique and unaffected by art movements and trends. In her artwork Zoe has found a way of expressing herself. Amidst apparent chaos and hyperactivity is joy and a strange kind of serenity. For Zoe, her world and her people, are the realisation of a utopian dream where love, fun and friendship are neverending.

The LEGO® Club has teamed up with the NAS to launch an exciting new fundraising challenge for LEGO Club members.

 

As part of the challenge, LEGO Club members have the chance to win up to £250 of LEGO products! The winner will get £250 of LEGO products, while ten runners-up will get £100 of products. All LEGO Club members who enter the challenge and donate at least £1 will receive a fantastic LEGO frog!

If you’re not a member, but would like to join the LEGO Club and help to fundraise for the NAS, visit the LEGO Club website at: www.LEGOclub.com

 

The challenge is simple: raise as much money as you can. All donations will go towards a new playground for children with autism at the NAS Radlett Lodge School.

 

Our challenge runs until 31 December 2008, so you have until the end of the year to collect as many donations as you can.

 

All LEGO Club members who are residents of the United Kingdom, Eire and the Channel Islands can take part in our challenge.
