The art sale at the Northlight Gallery and Hamnavoe Restaurant in Stromness at the weekend has raised an astounding £8340. All of the money raised is going to the Red Cross Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Appeal.
DEC charities and their local partners are in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries providing food, water, shelter and medical assistance.
The Northlight Gallery sold 133 artworks : paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics and glass.
Some of the remaining artworks, books and other miscellaneous objects, are going to be sold for the Ukraine Appeal in Plainstones, Ingirid Morrison’s charity shop in what was the Stromness OTE shop, and for their various charitable purposes in the Red Cross Shop.
Cary Welling of the Nrthlight Gallery says a very big thank you to all of the donors and volunteers who helped with the sales.
