Thank you all for your wonderful support. A very worthy cause.

The specially autographed large print sold on Ebay for £ 200 and the smaller one raised £ 64.

only have 4 prints left just signed by the artist.

The total came to well over £ 4700 and we are thrilled with the results.

With the other donations the Karen Keating foundation will receive in excess of £ 5500 a truly brilliant result. Once more thank you for your support. It has been a real pleasure to run this project.

A special Thanks to Lee for all his help and patience.

I have donated this picture with its full copyright to the Children’s Hospice South West, to help them to raise money for the building and subsequent running of the new hospice being built near St Austell. ( Prints and cards will be available at a later date) it will be announced on their bulletin board on Hospice site.

The raffle started at the Royal Cornwall show and it finished yesterday at the Coomhead farm craft event where the winner of the raffle ticket was drawn.

The picture eventually raised £4,223.00 for the Hospice but the story does not end there as next year  a set of special limited edition prints will be made by the charity and that should be followed by a run of smaller ones that should be available when the hospice is up and running.  So to our delight this picture has a lot more to give.( a good excuse to stay in touch with these wonderful fund raiser staff!)

All will be announced on their web site where progress can be followed.

My wife and I take this opportunity to wish the organisation great success. And thank all especially Judy Pride and Levenia for all their help with this project which gave us tremendous pleasure.
