Church painted for RNLI

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
