Having a Ball

A while ago I was approached to donate a piece of art work in order to help INTO-Giving, based at the University of East Anglia, to raise funds for the building of an Orphans and Vulnerable Childrens Centre in Lusaka, Zambia.

Many artists from all over this region and beyond have agreed to donate their work as part of a grand auction to raise money. You can see more on this website:

At a very swish Ball being held at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich on 9th September 200 guests will enjoy a Champagne reception, four course dinner, auction, raffle and dancing.

All the donated art can be seen now in the online catalogue on INTO-Giving's website, (above), and will also be on display at the Forum in Norwich from 1st to 3rd September. Bids can be taken at anytime before 9th September via the website.

They say that seven is a lucky number and below is a picture of Lot Number 7 in the auction - so I hope it IS lucky and that someone bids a ridiculous amount of money for it, for a good cause!

I have called it 'Patchwork and Paisley'.


  1. That is brilliant - all of it - the piece of work, being approached to make a donation and making a donation. I hope it gets a very good price indeed.

  2. It's beautiful and should fetch a pretty penny methinks! Cx

  3. The bowl is great and your heart - even greater :)
    Good luck!!!!

  4. Great post and cause. In fact I've recently been thinking that us bloggers should do more to promote charitable causes. I participate in the Oxfam Books tag your bag scheme but I've never blogged about it and I will now.
