Cornwall Council has withdrawn all funding for youth services in Falmouth. In the light of this, Falmouth Rotary Club has decided to host a secret art sale in aid of local children in need. The funds will give them the opportunity to visit BF Adventure. They will learn life skills including self-preservation, common sense and teamwork in a physically-challenging but safe environment. These courses have a track record of boosting self-confidence, self-esteem and respect for others.
We are writing to ask for your help in achieving our target of 200+ artworks by contributing your own unique item. Each and every artwork will be sold for £35 and will give one young person the opportunity to attend the adventure centre for a day. This could make a big difference to their lives. 100% of the money raised will go to the “Survival 2015” project.
Please supply us with one or more A5 (10cmsx15cms) artworks in any medium (without mounts or frames) and signed on the back. We regret no artwork can be returned but please supply your e-mail, address or phone number so we can thank you for your donation.
The exhibits will be hung in Falmouth Art Gallery, which is generously helping Rotary with the project, for the week commencing Monday May 4th at 1400hrs. The exhibition ends on Saturday, May 9th at 1700hrs. The gallery will then re-open for the sale at 1800hrs and close at 2000hrs. Purchases are on a first come first served basis and each customer can only buy two artworks at a time. If they wish to purchase more that have to queue again. Each exhibit will be photographed, catalogued and shown on the gallery’s website and Rotary’s websites. There will be publicity in the local media.
Please support us in this very worthwhile project
