We are really excited to be working with Redhouse Originals and Andy Dennis (walka2b) to bring you an unbelievable opportunity to own a fantastic work of art and to help a genuinely good cause. Influential artists Gered Mankowitz, Goldie, Horace Panter (The Specials), Pete McKee, Dudley Edwards, Peter Doherty, David Rusbatch, Ian Skelly (The Coral), The Studio of Ezra and Pete Smith (Live Aid) have contributed limited edition prints to be raffled in order to support Médecins Sans Frontières.
The pieces will be exhibited at Redhouse Originals in Harrogate from 23 February – 23 March 2015 and can be viewed on their website. Tickets are priced at £10.00 and are available in Bean & Bud, at Redhouse Gallery in person or online. The draw for the lucky winners will be held at Bean & Bud at 6pm on Monday 23 March over a glass of prosecco.
The project was inspired by our good friend Andy Dennis, who has just returned from Sierra Leone where he was working with MSF to help the fight against Ebola. MSF is an international medical humanitarian organisation providing aid in nearly 80 countries. It operates free of any political, military, or religious agendas, bringing impartial assistance to those most in need.
Andy says: “At the end of 2014 I worked for four weeks in the Ebola Management Centre in Kailahun, Sierra Leone. There were many tragedies in this time but also many beautiful successes. I have looked into the eyes of frightened and sick people and I know that without Médecins Sans Frontières many of them would have suffered and died alone. I am proud to work for an organisation that says that this is not acceptable and steps up to be counted where and when they are most needed.”
All proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to Médecins Sans Frontières.
