Environment Trust Art Auction: Great News!
The Auction on 21st November raised over £15,000 from donated works. This is the best result ever in the Auction's history, and a real triumph for all the artists and contributors who made the evening so special.
Delighted Environment Trust chairman John Anderson said, 'It’s a record! We owe a great debt of thanks to the continued generosity of local artists as well as those more established artists who donated their work for the benefit of the Trust. The proceeds will help support our wide-ranging work in environmental education and volunteering, as well as practical conservation projects.'
This year's theme for the Auction was 'Then and Now', which links to the Trust’s new volunteer-led historic buildings project that celebrates and promotes the borough’s everyday heritage. The art auction team are: John Iddon, auctioneer and fine art expert; Ros Newby, organiser; Jenny Pearce, organiser; Ann Callaway, organiser; Linden Loader, publicity; Yvonne Hewett, website; Jenny Willis, office support; Berny Simcox, office support; Tim Little, tech.
Thanks to everyone to took part in the Auction: bidders, artists, and contributors.
