Wild print at Devizes charity Bag4Sport Foundation auction
6:00pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
Celebrated wildlife artist Joanna May has donated a signed limited edition print of a black leopard to raise money for Devizes charity Bag4Sport Foundation.
Ms May, who lives near Devizes, has supported the charity since she helped judge its T-shirt design competition nearly two years ago.
She has donated one of her paintings to help raise money for the foundation which is committed to boosting grass roots sport by giving grants to clubs and organisations.
The original of the picture sold for £6,000. Signed, limited edition prints sell for around £900. The print is to be the star lot in an auction at a cabaret evening at The Bear Hotel on Saturday, which will also feature sporting memorabilia, restaurant meals and sports tickets.
Elvis impersonator Garry Foley will top the bill and magician Mark Peace will also perform.
A few tickets for the event are still available and can be booked by emailing email@example.com To bid for the print without attending, deliver a sealed bid to the Bag4Sport offices at APT Electrics, Roundway Business Park, Hopton Industrial Estate, Devizes by 5pm tomorrow.
