Artist’s brush with flood fund-raising
RENOWNED artist Ashley Jackson is to blend his painting talents with a special fund-raising canvas to help people stricken by the summer floods.
The world-famous Yorkshire watercolour artist has linked up with Halifax department store Harveys for a colourful evening of entertainment.
Proceeds from the black tie event at Harveys restaurant in Commercial Street, Halifax, will go to the Upper Calder Valley Flood Fund.
Tickets for the one-off evening on Thursday, November 1 (7pm to 10pm) are available by a donation of £50 each.
All of the cash will go directly to the Upper Calder Valley Flood Fund managed by the Community Foundation for Calderdale.
Steve Duncan, of the community foundation, said: “We would love you to join us for what will be a fabulous evening’s entertainment, while helping those affected earlier this year by the devastating floods.”
Ashley Jackson, who is from Holmfirth and is currently appearing on YTV’s Calendar news programme, will present an evening of painting and humour in his own entertaining style, said Steve.
The Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, Dr Ingrid Roscoe - the current president of the Community Foundation for Calderdale - will be among the guests. There will be a Yorkshire-themed buffet and refreshments provided by the Little Valley Brewery, Cragg Vale, plus an auction and raffle during the evening. Everyone will receive a copy of Ashley’s latest book.
Places are very limited and tickets are available by contacting Steve Duncan (email firstname.lastname@example.org) or call 01422 349700.
