We have been very worried and frustrated, as so many people are about the virus. This is as a business and more importantly for family and friends. But we know that whilst we are doing our bit by staying closed and keeping our distance from those we love and care about, there are key workers out there who have to keep ‘essential’ services going. They all deserve a massive round of applause and recognition.
We want to do something, no matter how small, to show the NHS especially, that although there are many key workers doing amazing work, that we are so appreciative for what they are doing on the very front line.
Michele decided to bring forward something she had been planning for some time. Something fellow creatives can donate to and others can contribute to in the form of an online Postcard Art ‘Wish You Were Here’ Auction from the comfort and safety of their homes, and hopefully should lockdown be lifted in time, they can physically see the postcard artwork at the gallery. All profits from the auction will go to NHS Charities Together.
So, if you are a UK artist who is interested in applying to be shortlisted to be involved. Watch this space over the next couple of weeks for a link to how you could play your part.

Update 1st June 2020 – Sad to announce that this has now been cancelled due to lack of support. We hope to try another fundraiser later in the year.
