CHARITY AUCTION SUCCESS

Over £20,000 was raised during an Art Exhibition and Auction to raise funds for the Earth Trust, which manages Wittenham Clumps and the surrounding woodland and nature reserve.

Professional and amateur artists donated over 100 paintings, prints, ceramics and sculptures, which were displayed in the Trustís restored 19th century barn in Little Wittenham. Guests were invited to bid on the majority of pieces via a silent auction which ran throughout the night, whilst certain items, including paintings by Christopher Miers RBA, Kurt Jackson, and Ken Howard OBE RA, were sold during a live auction in the middle of the evening.

Money raised will go towards supporting the Earth Trustís work, which includes the creation of a new wetland along the banks of the Thames. This injection of funds comes at a crucial time, as the Earth Trust Farm income is likely to be affected by the current low wheat prices.

Guests who attended the auction enjoyed drinks and a hot bowl supper cooked and served by students from the Oxford Brookes School of Hospitality. The meal was prepared using local ingredients, including pork from Coopers Oxford Pork and vegetables from Cultivate - both businesses based at the Earth Trust Farm.
