Charity Auction for 'The Sick Children's Trust'!

I have recently been contacted about a local charity auction to raise money for the charity 'The Sick Children's Trust'. I have been asked if I would donate a piece of my work for this auction and I'm delighted to say yes! For such a fantastic cause!

Paul Dobson, from Bridlington, is undertaking a challenge to climb Base Camp Everest in November 2013. This will be an extremely physical challenge, the climb will take him to 5,640m altitude, covering 110kms over 14 days.

The Sick Children's trust has played a very important part in Paul's life, when his Grandson was urgently admitted to Leeds General Infirmary with Intussusception. 

Living in Bridlington and having to travel to Leeds was immense stress for the family. Eckersley house was then introduced to them as part of The Sick Children;s Trust, offering clean and comfortable accommodation where the whole family can stay close to their children's bedside.

For a family to stay in one of their homes it costs the Charity £30 per bedroom per night. The charity depends solely on donations and is not funded by the government. 

With your Help Paul hopes to raise £4,000 for Eckersley House, which will help them to continue to provide their fantastic services and continue to support other families with sick children.

Through Virgin Money Giving you can sponsor Paul online, here's the link :

Any local artists or businesses who wish to donate for the auction please feel free to get in touch. The date of the auction is still to be confirmed but I will keep you informed!
