Artist auc­tion helps bridge funds short­fall

EMO­TIONAL VISIT TO PRI­MARY SCHOOL

Pinjarra Murray Times - - STREET WATCH -

MAN­DURAH artist Emma Blyth was brought to tears when she vis­ited Man­durah Pri­mary School and saw where the money from her Crab Fest art­work had gone.

Mrs Blyth auc­tioned off her gor­geous paint­ing fea­tur­ing the Old Man­durah Bridge and do­nated the $5400 raised to the school.

“I cried be­cause I was just blown away with the prin­ci­pal Natasha Up­cott and her team of teach­ers and how much they go out of their way to care for their stu­dents,” she said.

“The school’s store­room shelves went from empty to full from the auc­tion of my Crab Fest paint­ing.

“I am just so glad that I can help in some small way.

“Well done to the staff at this school for mak­ing a dif­fer­ence; I think you are amaz­ing.”

Blyth is now gath­er­ing in­spi­ra­tion for her art piece to rep­re­sent next year’s Crab Fest.
