Jack Dee and John Challis aka ‘Boycie’ from Only Fools and Horses are among the latest celebrities to submit postcard art to our Hidden Potential fundraiser.
Also on board are: Dr Hilary Jones, environmental campaigner Cal Major, actors Simon Pegg and Penelope Keith and writer Jilly Cooper.
We have received a plethora of wonderful art from professional artists around the world such as Wolfgang Buttress and John Isaacs and many more from young carers themselves.
We are still looking for art to add to our numbers and hope to raise hundreds from the sale which launches at the end of this month. Please keep visiting our website: http://www.glosyoungcarers.org.uk/hidden-potential-postcard-art/for information and to browse the art that you may be allocated in this random sale.
We will displaying all of the art at Elmore Court, Gloucester in September, selling them blind for £50 each. Buyers will receive a raffle ticket and will then be allocated a postcard – it may have been donated by a well-known artist or a talented young carer, a volunteer or just a kind donor. Buyers will also be invited to the canapes and drinks reception which will mark the distribution of the art.
All funds, of course, will go towards our charity’s work with young carers across the county.
Details of the sale will be revealed later this month BUT for now we need your help gathering together the art. Are you a talented artist? Do you know a famous artist? What about a celebrity who can sketch something special?
