and prisoners from HMP Erlestoke
Alongside the cARTes postales campaign, a charity art auction was held on 25 October with art and sculpture generously donated by:
Anna Bromiley, Dugald Graham-Campbell, Ian Weatherhead, Katherine Swinfen Eady, Lucianne Lassalle, Martin Clunes, New Art Centre (Barry Flanagan), Paul Jones, Peter Randall-Page RA, Suzy Miles, Will Spankie and The Longford Estate who generously donated a day’s fishing.
A total of over £13,750 has been raised so far, but if you wish to add to this sum, please see the link below. Your donation would be very much appreciated by both the charities.
How will the funds be used?
The Friends of Erlestoke Prison aim to raise £500,000 to fund an all-weather sports pitch within the prison grounds. There is no facility of this kind at present. CARTes Postales will, we hope, make a major contribution to this important project. It has the mental and physical wellbeing of the prisoners at its heart, with a view to their rehabilitation.
The Salisbury Museum is an independent charity, which uses its outstanding collections of art, archaeology, costume and social history to encourage learning, inspiration and enjoyment for all. The money raised will support the museum on its journey towards securing a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. This project will complete the much needed transformation of our Salisbury history galleries, restore our medieval home and launch a programme of learning and community activities to build and grow our audiences.
Both charities thank everyone who has supported this fundraising initiative and all contributions are very much appreciated.
