A Watford resident, Marianne Church, is holding an art auction to raise some vital funds for Brain Tumour Research, which will also be a tribute to her late cousin who passed away with in February this year.
The auction will be alongside local artist Amma Gyan’s exhibition, which is taking place at Vicarage Road Cemetery on December 12, where artists can exhibit their work.
Speaking to WatfordNews, Marianne said: “Out of an initial discussion with Amma, I thought of having an exhibition of my art at her venue in order to raise funds for an important charity that is close to my heart, on what would have been my late cousin’s first birthday since his death in February.
“I’ve been doing this art as a sort of therapy after a traumatic time that saw my mother also get diagnosed with cancer and have got some really good feedback so far and even managed to sell a few pieces. I do it whenever I can and it’s sort of been like a secret affair for me!
“I haven’t got a target of how much I want to raise, just as much as we possibly can. The most expensive piece I sold was for £130, so if we can reach those sort of prices again that would be great.”
