It is London Art Biennale tradition to give help to people in need. Over the years, tens of thousands of pounds have been raised and donated to Rotary International’s “End Polio Now” Charity, the Salvation Army, London’s Air Ambulance and Age UK. The charity cheques were presented by the Mayors of Kensington and Chelsea; Councillor Christopher Buckmaster in 2013; Councillor Mrs Maighread Condon-Simmonds in 2015; and Councillor Elizabeth Rutherford in 2017 and Cllr Will Pascall in 2019.

Artworks by artists such as Andy Warhol, Pietro Annigoni and Jose Van Roy Dali as well as a new Fiat 500 car have been donated over the years to riase funds for good causes.
