ARTWORK created for a competition in aid of a church restoration appeal is set to be auctioned off to raise money.
Holy Trinity Church, in Seaton Carew, held the art competition earlier this year towards its £150,000 Wing and a Prayer restoration appeal.
The competition, organised by supporters of the appeal, was hailed a great success and raised £160 for the cause, which has topped £25,000.
The initiative is set to bring in more money when pictures will be auctioned off to the highest bidders in an event at Seaton Carew Cricket Club on Saturday.
Organisers say the fun evening promises to be a good night out and will also include a quiz and supper.
The art competition was open to children and adults who were asked to produce a drawing/painting collage or photo, based on the appeal’s Wing and a Prayer theme.
The best 12 entries will be made into a calendar which will raise more money for the appeal.
Entries and other artwork donated by local artists will be auctioned at the cricket club in Elizabeth Way.
Captain Reverend Paul Allinson said: “We are looking forward to an exciting evening. The more the merrier.
“Please come and support it. You might leave with a nice picture.”
Later this month, Holy Trinity church choir will perform in concert in aid of the restoration fund
The theme for the event on Saturday, September 24, is musicals.
It is also part of celebrations for Holy Trinity’s 190th anniversary.
Tickets for the fundraising night at the cricket club are £3.95, available from the church or by contacting Rev Allinson on (01429) 872626.
