PER­RY­WOOD Gar­den Cen­tre and Nurs­eries in Tip­tree is thrilled to have raised more than £1,300 for char­ity at an art auc­tion and post­card sale held re­cently. The event was or­gan­ised as part of the Bir­kett Long £50 chal­lenge, which gives a team £50 un­til the end of Septem­ber to use to raise as much money as pos­si­ble for St He­lena Hospice. Per­ry­wood’s Lucy HookChild and Hannah Pow­ell took on the chal­lenge of or­gan­is­ing the suc­cess­ful art auc­tion and post­card sale.

The auc­tion, where 30 pieces of art­work went un­der the ham­mer, was hosted by auc­tion­eer Tim Med­hurst from Duke’s Auc­tions. As well as paint­ing, there were ce­ram­ics, jew­ellery, pho­tog­ra­phy and ta­pes­try up for auc­tion. Orig­i­nal art­work post­cards were also for sale as well as high qual­ity art sup­plies and books. Pa­per­craft tu­tor and in­de­pen­dent Stampin’ Up! demon­stra­tor Katy Free­man was on hand to help cus­tomers cre­ate their own post­card­sized piece of art and Lucy ran a mono print­ing work­shop.
