On Tuesday 30 June, Queen’s Gate hosted ‘Postcards from Home’, an online charity art auction, to raise money for Age UK Kensington & Chelsea, Holy Trinity Brompton Shelter, the Mental Health Foundation and Show Racism the Red Card.
The artworks, produced and donated by both Queen’s Gate pupils and well-known artists, including QG alumnae, were kept anonymous until the ‘big reveal’, once bidding had closed!
It was a thoroughly enjoyable affair, with the Head of Art, Mr Mataya, adding humour and points of interest to each piece of work in his role as auctioneer.
Over 50 artworks were sold, and a fantastic £1,393.00 was raised in total!
