During the month of July Christine was the ‘Featured Artist’ at the Art Gallery @ The Bay Hotel, Pevensey Bay with her exhibition ‘Quirky Works’. She was thrilled to sell two paintings and donated 10% of her sales to St Wilfrid’s Hospice, Eastbourne as part of our ongoing charitable fundraising efforts.
We had a stall at the Bexhill Artists Workplace Summer Fair on Saturday 3 August at St Barnabus Church, Bexhill-on-Sea. Although it was a quiet occasion we were happy to display some of our arts and crafts and took orders for renowned printmaker Annie Soudain’s beautiful 2020 calendar ‘Heart Land’.
On Bank Holiday Monday, 26 August we had a stall at the ACAP ‘Art & Crafts Fayre’ at The Bay Hotel, Pevensey Bay which was open to members of the public from 10am to 4pm. Swathed in glorious sunshine throughout, we set up our table with other members of our group at the rear of the hotel, and enjoyed a very successful day, raising more funds for St Wilfrid’s Hospice, Eastbourne.
Thanks to the Bay Hotel for hosting the event and also to the guys at J.S.Gedge for their help on the day.
Below, is an extract from a letter we received from St Wilfrid’s Hospice
“I am writing to say a huge thank you for organising an arts and crafts event and raising a wonderful £108.74 for the Hospice. The amount you have raised could pay for a Registered Nurse to provide care on an Inpatient Unit for one day, which we are very grateful for.” Lotti Prangnell, Community Fundraiser
