The event starts with a special, by invitation, auction on Friday evening hosted by Graham Barton. Featured in the auction are a private wine tasting, a fishing trip, large (5ft) Union Jack rug as well as art workshops with some of the artists. Full details on the charity website. Contact for an invitation to the evening.

The event is open to all on Saturday 18th November from 10 am to 12 midday. Light refreshments will be available.

The artists exhibiting at this year’s show are: Christine Allison, Anne Townsend, Maggie Stead, Marina Morris, Jools Woodhouse, Alison Bowskill, Trudi Ochiltree and Alban Connell along with art produced from the charity’s creative workshops.

“We are delighted to host this event again and to bring to you a mix of talented artists across a range of different forms and materials, who are contributing a percentage of the sales of their works to support our charity”, said Mary Kahn, founder of the charity.

“We would like to thank all the artists who submitted their works and contributed to making this art show possible, as well as the volunteers making this event possible.”

“We support anyone affected by any cancer in our area and this will help us to continue to provide needed help and care to many in our community."
