A charity auction held at The Acorn Gallery in Pocklington managed to raise £600 when the bidding finally stopped on Saturday 27 June.
The auction of a painting by artist Sarah Louise Ewing, held by John and Diane at the gallery, raised vital funds for Combat Stress, the veterans’ mental health charity.
The painting was created especially by the artist and featured intricate Union Jack bunting hanging in golden trees in a heavily textured landscape.
Entitled ‘Forever England’ the piece raised £600 and the winning bid came from a lady in Suffolk, who was delighted to have won but who said she would have paid more for such a beautiful piece of work. Afterwards artist Sarah said she was delighted with the result and very happy for the charity whose vital work helps veterans old and young.
