A one-of-a-kind canvas is being auctioned off with the proceeds going towards an NHS charity.
The artwork entitled ‘Support the NHS’ was created by talented Nantwich-based artist Tony Denton.
Money raised from the art auction will go towards Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity, which supports patients, their families, and staff at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The art piece, which measures 35×35 inches, was inspired by all the staff who work for the National Health Service (NHS).
‘Support the NHS’ can be viewed in the shop window of the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge on High Street in the centre of Nantwich. ‘Support the NHS’ is displayed alongside the painting of 100-year-old fund-raising war veteran Captain Tom Moore, that Tony Denton recently produced and kindly donated to the people of Nantwich.
The auction is being held online. To enter a bid for ‘Support the NHS’, please visit Facebook and enter your bid.
The auction period will end on Friday 22nd May 2020 at noon.
Tony Denton said: “It’s a time to help and support the people who work in the NHS who put themselves at risk to help us.”
Steve Lawson, of the Nantwich Bookshop and Coffee Lounge, said: “We are proud to support the local community by displaying the ‘Captain Tom’ painting; along with the ‘Support the NHS’ painting which will raise much-deserved money for Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity.”
Carole Salmon, Community Fundraiser, Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity said: “I was delighted to hear from Tony and see his fantastic artwork. The money raised will be used to support the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of Mid Cheshire Hospitals Foundation Trust staff during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.”
