Auction prize comes full circle!

Bywater Street Artwork - goes full circle.jpg

We couldn’t believe our ears when our auction prize winner Rob told us this story!

Rob was the highest bidder on the Bywater Street Artwork by artist Milli Art and it turns out that when it was painted back in July 2017, Rob lived on that exact street.

Rob said: “My wife and I walked out the house that morning and Milli Art (Louise) was painting this picture which we were very impressed with. It was a sunny morning but in the afternoon it started raining so we made her a cup of tea whilst she continued to paint.”

After Milli Art had finished, packed up and left, Rob said: “We didn’t think much more of the painting until 2 weeks ago when we saw the original up for grabs in the "Bid for George’s" virtual fundraising auction.”

We absolutely love that Rob’s story has gone full circle and now he is the proud owner of the Bywater Street painting, not only that but he has also supported St George’s Hospital Charity at the end of a very difficult year for our NHS.

We want to thank everyone who donated in our Bid for George’s auction and also our Claus for the Cause campaign, we are so excited to reveal the final amount raised!
