In Support of Help for Heroes

Warwickshire artist Mike Yorke created a hugely moving piece of sculpture in commemoration of all the British soldiers lost during the Afghanistan conflict.

"Empty Chairs" consists of hundreds of hand-made, miniature wooden chairs, each in the style of the famous Vincent Van Gogh chair - the number sadly grows as more lives are tragically lost.

A moving tribute to the British soldiers lost in the Afghanistan conflict has also been created set to music enhances the viewers' experience.
