Church painted for RNLI
A KEEN artist is selling paintings of Prestbury Church in aid of charity.
Tim Hunt, from Henbury, sketched and painted a watercolour of the church while sitting at the window of the Legh Arms, which has a perfect view of the church – when there are no leaves on the trees.
Now he has decided to sell prints of the work in order to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) – which provides a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service around the UK and Ireland.
Tim, of Pexhill Road, said: “I’ve sold a few so far but there are plenty more.
“I chose the church because it’s very pretty.
“I had to start it in January when there are no leaves on the trees. I’m very happy with the result.”
Tim has previously raised money for the charity by exhibiting his miniature lifeboats and tanks in glass bottles.
Retired garment industry worker Tim has chosen to support the lifeboat charity because of his own service in the Navy during his national service in 1956.
Prints are available from the Legh Arms, Henry’s Cafe, the Village Pharmacy and Prestbury Golf Club.
