Shelterbox Auction


Late last month I headed down to Cornwall to visit my family, and luckily well timed it to attend the Shelterbox Charity Art Auction in Plymouth that I had donated one of my signed prints to.  It was a great little night organised by a couple of my friends, featuring a really diverse range of paintings, print, jewellery, photography and illustration.  Absolutely all the funds raised from the auction went straight to Shelterbox, a really great charity who provide emergency housing and lifesaving support for people around the world - so people certainly weren't shy with bidding!

Hannah Jump (organiser) w/ Martin Jump's work - Samuel J Pidgen (my brother)'s photography print - My donated print.
The auction raised over £600 for Shelterbox and there were a lot of happy faces going home with some lovely artwork! There will hopefully be more of these auctions in the future, so I'll let you know in advance and you can all get involved. Nice nice nice.
