Charity art auction.

I was contacted some time ago by Ian Stacey who is organizing a charity art auction, the proceeds of which will go towards research done by the transplant team at Great Ormond Street Hospital. The charity has set up a blog, which explains a little more about the auction scheduled for Christmas.

Ian and Christine Stacey are only too aware of the fantastic work being carried out at the hospital, as their son Tom was the youngest person ever to survive a heart transplant at less than five weeks old. You can read the full story here.

  10. My cousin's little boy has spent much of his early months in and out of Great Ormond Street, and will need further treatment throughout his childhood years. Without the care he has received he wouldn't still be with us. I have had a look through your link and can see the illustrations making lots of money for such a good cause. x
