Print Auction for Charity

I am putting up 10 prints for auction to raise money for East African Playgrounds, a charity that provides playground equipment for disadvantaged communities and refugees in Uganda.

The project provides opportunities for young people to make a real change for children in East Africa and relies on volunteers to work with local people to improve their school facilities and encourage play for young children who are often required to work and have no opportunities to simply be children.

My daughter, currently studying at the University of York, is planning to go to Uganda later this year to take part in such a project and is raising funds by various methods, including a 10k sponsored run! All monies raised from the auction will go directly to this*.

The prints are all from my archive, some of which are the very last ones, never to be reprinted! The work is all my own and each piece is signed and numbered where appropriate. Many of them are prints that have been recorded in progress and featured on my blog.

The first print is a large(ish) screenprint and apart from my own copy, this is the very last one…

I am setting the starting bid for each print at £10 and hope to raise as much money as possible for this.

The auctions will all be on EBAY and will begin on Saturday 3rd March, with a different print launched each day. I will also be posting on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram – please spread the word!
