In honour of the courage and community spirit that rose from the ashes of the Grenfell Tower fire, two brave fire fighters created a painting to raise funds for the British Red Cross. Crew manager Carl Ramsay and fire fighter Robert Davison explained: “We added the thin green, blue and red lines on the building to signify all of the emergency services, and the love hearts the many lives lost.”
We were delighted to provide the frame for the artwork, which boasts around 60 signatures from fire fighters, survivors and celebrities including José Mourinho and exhibit it at our Covent Garden gallery. An overwhelming number of people entered the raffle, helping these two heroes to exceed their fundraising target and raise over £1,000 for the British Red Cross.
In November 2017, artist Jon Jones produced a new oil painting depicting the notorious Peaky Blinders gang, in support of the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The piece, entitled He Who Fights by the Sword, was exhibited in our Mailbox gallery as part of a month-long raffle draw, with all proceeds being
donated to support the amazing work being done by the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. We were delighted to pay a visit to the fantastic team at the hospital’s fundraising hub and present a cheque for £6,000 to Eloise Davidson, corporate fundraising manager at Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.
