Paddington Bear for The Children’s Trust

I was delighted to be asked to create a painting for The Children’s Trust charity to be auctioned at a fundraising ball. The Trust provide amazing care and support for children and young adults with brain injuries. They also provide excellent support to the children’s families.

I decided that a special painting of Paddington Bear from the recent films would be very appropriate for them to auction and this proved to be the case on the night as he was very popular with a lot of different bidders competing for him! The painting was titles “Please look after this Bear. Thank you” and was created on an A to Z map of London with Paddington Station prominent in the corner.

I’m delighted to say he raised an amazing £3,000 for the Trust! They have also asked me to create a special painting to be auctioned at their Autumn Fundraising Ball at The Savoy in London… really looking forward to supporting them again.

Liz Johnson, Major Donor Executive at the Trust said “Thank you so much Nick. The wonderful Paddington painting made an incredible £3,000 which will go towards supporting our work with children and young people with brain injury and neurodisability”

Here I am presenting the painting to the Trust and the winning bidder collecting him after the event.
