This years Open & Shut sketch pads have been put together to help raise funds for the Mercy Centre Foundation
This is the first of what we hope to be many annual appeals for a different charity each year. Each year will take the format of three sketch pads that will be sent to a group of artists to produce works of their choice to help raise funds for the nominated charity. Next years event will include a limited edition book of the works produced.
This year’s contributors and people of immense generosity are as follows.
Open & Shut - Y2008
The Main Event
The three books will be auctioned on Ebay with auctions commencing the 11.10.2008 and running for 30 days.
Books 1 & 2 will be raffled on Ebay with each ticket costing £5.00 and with payment strictly by Paypal. The auction will be listed as 100% donation to charity and the payments will be made directly to the Paypal account of the registered charity. In this way we minimise fees and maximise the contribution to the nominated charity. People are more than welcome to buy more than one ticket and the unique reference number issued by Paypal will be used in the raffle process. The two winners will be announced on or around the 18.11.2008.
Book 3 will be auctioned on Ebay with the auction again commencing on the 11.10.2008 and running for 20 days. Payment for this book will be by Paypal or Cheque only. Any Paypal payment will again be made directly to the Paypal account of the registered charity and with all cheques being made out directly to the charity.
Donations – Several Galleries and Artists made very kind separate donations. These will all be auctioned as individual items on Ebay during the month of Oct-08. Payment for these donations will be by Paypal or Cheque only. Any Paypal payment will again be made directly to the Paypal account of the registered charity and with all cheques being made out directly to the charity.
