Grizzly scene helps air ambulance
Seaton artist donates �200 to the flying medics
A PICTURE of Seaton’s world-famous running race – in all its “Grizzly” detail – has raised �200 for the Devon Air Ambulance.
The colourful and detailed painting of the seaside endurance run – substituting animals as competitors – was created by local artist and charity fund raiser Ursula Pratt.
She put a large print of the picture on sale in her Fore street Gallery and donated the �200 it fetched to the flying medics.
This week local air ambulance supporters Colin Pearce and Jean Beardsell went along to collect a giant cheque on behalf of the charity.
