Last month the St Leonard's Hospice Shop in Heworth hosted a two week exhibition of art by our members. 27 pictures were sold during this event along with a number of the remaining fridge magnets from the 200th Exhibition. Total revenue was just under £1000, raising a total of £281.20 towards the Hospice's work.
Congratulations and thanks to all who exhibited or supported in any way. Particular thanks to Peter Cooke, Audrey Kirk and Wendy Taylor for generously donating more than the standard 20% share to the hospice.
Maira Aebi, shop manager, commented "Thank you so much for once again bringing art and our charity together in an otherwise dull, quiet month. The quality of art this year has been the best yet, and we had many people in looking and so many positive comments. Even though sales were not as strong as in past years, we were very happy with the traffic it brought to our shop. We hope you will be happy to do it again in 2016!"
