“This year we have presented a series of online fundraising sales to raise funds for charities, particularly those hard hit by the consequences of the pandemic. We are now organising an online fundraiser for the Trussell Trust as this time of year is important for individuals, communities and organisations to help food banks across the country. In light of the pandemic, more support will be needed than ever so the gallery, my wife Claire Hyman and I have donated these artworks and really hope that the 50% of the proceeds being donated will help.”
