ART SALE HELPS PERRYWOOD RAISE GRAND TOTAL
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.
