Art Auction for Action

6 April 2023

Gartree High School X LCB Depot
Art auction to raise funds for the DEC, supporting the disasters in Syria and Turkey

Join us at LCB on Thursday 6th April from 6pm-8pm for our Gartree High School X LCB Art Auction for Action. We’ve teamed up with students and staff from Gartree to raise funds for those affected by the disasters in Syria and Turkey. 

The money we raise on the night will continue to allow charities that work under the DEC to provide shelter, medical support, food and clothing to the Turkish and Syrian people affected.

For one night only, guests will have the opportunity to bid on pieces of artwork from big name local artists, such as Bob and Roberta Smith, Florence Lee, Olivier Leger, Jane French, David Maddock, Sarah Kirby…and more! There will also be the opportunity to bid live on 5 special pieces selected by Gartree students!

We are excited to be working with staff and students from Gartree; students will be helping to run the auction on the night!

Mrs David, art teacher at Gartree says…

“As a school, we have students with connections to Turkey and Syria and on hearing about the earthquakes and the devastation caused, we immediately wanted to do something to support those affected. Along with the generous artists who have donated an amazing variety of art work, our students have also been getting creative in the hope to make the auction and the funds raised as successful as possible.”
