In aid of PAPYRUS - Time to Make Memories - REMARQUE Edition 4 from Sam Toft
Each year we choose a charity to support, and with the help of our amazing artists and customers, we try to do our bit to try to make a difference for others.
For the next year, our chosen charity is PAPYRUS, a charity focused on the Prevention of Young Suicide.
PAPYRUS tells us: "Suicide is the biggest killer of young people under 35 in the UK. We believe many young suicides can be prevented. Through fundraising you are raising vital awareness of PAPYRUS and spreading our message of hope."
Artist Sam Toft has once again generously sent us some very special artwork for our charity fundraiser. Over the years Sam's generosity with time and talent has raised many thousands of pounds for charitable causes.
Sam has created Time to Make Memories, the original of which she has donated to @canvasforthemac - Macmillan Caring Locally - Charity Canvas online auction, on 25th November - a charity close to her heart.
Sam has sent us four beautifully remarqued limited editions of the artwork, which we will use to raise funds for PAPYRUS. Each has lots of original illustrations hand drawn by Sam in the white area beneath the title. The edition has just 8 prints plus 2 artist's proofs, and the remarques on each are completely different so each piece is unique.
Edition ONE is being raffled; tickets are £10 each, and can be bought online, by phone or in person at the gallery. All money raised will be donated to PAPYRUS. Each £10 donation will be allocated a ticket for Edition One, and the winner will be chosen at random on 31st December 2022, with the print shipped in the New Year.
This has been organised by The Braithwaite Gallery Ltd as a Small Society Lottery, registered with City of York Council, registration number 071646.
Special thanks to the lovely ladies at City of York Council's Licensing Unit for speedily processing the registration.
Edition TWO has been mounted and framed in a wide distressed black frame, profits from the print (after VAT has been deducted!) to PAPYRUS. Please note we can ship the framed edition within the UK only.
Editions THREE and FOUR have been mounted, profits (after VAT has been deducted!) to PAPYRUS. We can ship the mounted editions internationally.
We have also opened a JustGiving page if anyone wishes to donate without entering the raffle.
