Our supporters at Francis Isles
Macmillan would like to say thank you to Nettie Isles and everyone else at Francis Isles Gallery for raising £4,000 in their postcard sale.
Last December, Francis Isles Gallery held a sale of postcards to raise money for Macmillan. The postcards were designed and donated by various artists. They were displayed without a signature, so the buyers didn’t find out the artist’s identity until they made a purchase.
It was a really exciting event, with everyone keen to find out whose work they had bought. Mulled wine and mince pies added to the festive atmosphere and good cheer. It was a freezing night, so we’d like to say an additional thanks to everyone who came along and braved the elements. The whole evening was a great success, and we couldn’t have done it without everyone involved.
The impressive grand total of £4,000 is all going to Macmillan, and will help to improve the lives of people affected by cancer in the local area and elsewhere.
