Last year at Bon Papillon gallery/cafe they raised over £500 for charity with sales of postcard- sized art, and they hope to do even better this year for another charity they love (that’s us, then!).
Ingrid and Stuart who are Bon P say
“Bon P has been delighted to be able to help out Lynne McNicoll’s charity ‘It’s Good 2 Give’ over the year as the amazing Ripple Retreat was built in the Trossachs, now used as an invaluable breathing space for families of children with cancer.
To help with the charity continue its amazing work, we are hoping you will help us out again with one (or more?!) small original artworks to sell over the course of December with all proceeds going to the charity. We are also hoping that some of Lynne’s celebrity pals will donate pieces for the cause!
If you need mdf or board please pop into Bon P and I will sort you out. Otherwise, any roughly postcard-sized pieces are welcome!”
Show opens 30th November at 5pm (alongside the annual show of Ingrid’s work from the year) and runs until 5th January.
Any questions email me or pop to see Ingrid – Bon Papillon is situated at 15 Howe Street, Edinburgh and Stuart is famous for his scone baking – though I also have a fondness for their bacon rolls. It is a wonderful place to stop for a cuppa and of course now you can support us too by buying a wee piece of original art.
Any artists reading this please do consider donating a piece and lovely supporters reading this please consider buying a piece!
And if you know any celebrities yourself (or are one) how about asking them to donate something.
Thanks, Ingrid and Stuart – we very much appreciate all you have done to help us at our Ripple Retreat this year already and this is the icing on the cake.
