Secret Postcard Art Sale Raises £155

A secret charity postcard art sale held at Sainsbury’s, Crayford has raised £155 for the Freddie Farmer Foundation.

Postcards painted by artists, schoolchildren, footballers and celebrities including former Prime Minister David Cameron and quiz show host Bradley Walsh were sold at the store on Stadium Way last weekend (8-9 July).

Each miniature artwork had been signed on the reverse but buyers didn’t find out which artist was behind their postcard until after the sale had closed.

The art sale had been organised by Barbara Gordon from Swanley Road, Welling, to raise funds for equipment that will help disabled children to walk.

Organiser Mrs Gordon said: “It was a wonderful opportunity for us to raise awareness of the important work the Freddie Farmer Foundation does for disabled children.”

Charity officer Karen Smith said: “The art sale raised £155 but the total amount of coinage from the collection tins and buckets on the tills was £228.94 so the total raised over the two-day sale was £383.94, which is fantastic.”
