My Paul Weller painting raised £1,250 for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices!
My portrait of Paul Weller was auctioned off last week to raise money for local Woking charity, The Woking and Sam Beare Hospices, at its annual Gala Ball at Wentworth Golf Club.
Paul Weller is one of Woking’s most celebrated sons and has supported this hospice charity himself when he performed a fundraising concert in the town in 2010. I’m proud to say the painting sold for £1,250 at the Ball and the money raised will help the charity towards its new build appeal. Below is a picture of me donating the portrait the hospice’s CEO Nigel Harding. I also received a lovely email from their Community Fundraiser, Wendy Denty:-
“Thank you so much for donating it to us and helping to raise much needed funds for the Hospice.Without people like you we would be unable to care for local people facing life limiting illnesses.”
