Budleigh picture auction appeal

Sidmouth art lovers asked to support auction to aid Cancer Research UK

GOOD quality pictures, in any kind of media, are being sought by the Budleigh Salterton branch of Cancer Research UK for a charity auction in December.

The enthusiastic group plans to hold this latest fund-raising venture at the Masonic Hall, Budleigh Salterton, on Saturday, December 3.

Sue Hunt, secretary of Budleigh branch said: “We are hoping that people will be generous and donate a picture that they actually like in memory of someone they have lost, or indeed in celebration of someone getting the all clear, which happens more and more nowadays.”

There will be a viewing on the day, which will be followed by the auction. All contributions will be professionally displayed and Christopher Hampton of Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood will auction the pictures.

If you have a work of art you would like to donate to help those affected by cancer, call Sue on (01395) 445369 or email:jolyonhunt@uwclub.net or contact Sylvia Arlett at sylvia.arlett@cancer.org.uk.

Pictures can be collected.
