Do you have any paintings, prints, drawings or art catalogues you no longer need? If so, we’d very much like to hear from you !
We are keen to collect all forms of art – from works on paper to ceramics, jewellery, and interesting objets d’art for the annual charity action which takes place on Thursday 17th September 2009 6.30 til 8.30pm at City & Guilds of London Art School, Cleaver Square SE11.
PLEASE CALL 020 7091 0841 IF YOU WOULD LIKE US TO PICK UP ANY DONATIONS FOR THE AUCTION.
A big thank you to all the local artists and students who have donated works for the event so far. We are particularly excited about several original stone carvings – ideal for gardens and patios - which will go under the hammer.
As usual, we will also be auctioning pledges and promises donated by local businesses. The Auction is an ideal marketing platform for local businesses keen to attract new customers who live in the neighbourhood. In a reciprocal arrangement, those who donate a voucher for say, a meal for two, or a hair cut, for the auction, can promote their business free to all KA members. A big thank you to the most recent donations made by Hub Coffee House, Belgrave Hotel, Oval House Theatre, China Walk TRA Hall, Tesco and Cotton Tree Interior Designers.
Each year we raise several thousands of pounds: and every £40 coming from the event buys vouchers for a local family who would otherwise have little to rejoice about at Christmas time. Everyone gives their time freely to help with this important local scheme which assists needy families in the area entirely anonymously.
In the past five years the auction has gone from strength to strength: from a cramped basement in a restaurant at Kennington Cross, to a wonderful venue – the City & Guilds of London Art School - in the heart of Kennington. After three years in the hot seat, Catey is stepping down as coordinator at the end of this year – so we’d love to hear from you if you are organised; enthusiastic; keen to meet new people; and have the time to develop the auction further.
We do hope that you will join us in this Auction. Do tell your friends and neighbours too.
