With Christmas only a month or so away, why not buy a unique and original Christmas present, whilst supporting the Prostate Project charity. The last six months have been challenging for everyone. Lockdown restrictions has resulted in all our major face-to-face community fundraising activities being cancelled or postponed, leaving a huge hole in our income. So we have had to find creative ways to fundraise virtually. One of our lead scientists, Dr Nicola Annels came up with the great idea of holding an online fundraising art auction. Nicola contacted our local art community to see if any artists would be willing to help and we have been overwhelmed by the response. Over 40 Surrey based artists have generously donated over 85 pieces of their original artwork, ranging from experimental abstract to fine art, from still life to etchings. These are renowned artists who exhibit widely across the South East, as well as selling internationally.
Simply click on the piece of art you are interested in. You will be able to read a description of the artwork by the artist and place a bid*. The auction closes at 5pm on Saturday 5th December, so keep an eye on your email for further bids to ensure you secure the artwork you want. All proceeds will go directly to the Prostate Project. Good luck!
We are fully committed to funding the ground-breaking prostate cancer research Dr Annels and her team carry out at the University of Surrey. This amazing response from our local community during such uncertain times, means that together, we are closer to winning the war against prostate cancer.
