Going, Going, Gone!

On Tuesday 30 June, Head of Art, Mr Mataya, ably assisted by Ms Yates, 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 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!
