Charity auction now on!

Brian Pollard is widely acclaimed as one of the most popular and successful naive painters in the South West of England.

With the kind permission from Brian, an original piece of his artwork is available for auction on ebay.

The artwork can be found by searching for "Brian Pollard" on http://www.ebay.co.uk/

All proceeds from the auction will be going to PL-ease.

Very many thanks to Brian for his support.

End of the night!

As advertised by the Herald : http://www.thisisplymouth.co.uk/news/Charity-night-promote-group-s-work/article-426043-detail/article.html, our charity night managed to raise £147. We raised £97 from a raffle, and a further £50 from donations at the end of the night.

A little disappointed by the turn-out, but I guess it was our first event of this kind so we can only learn from this and move on.

We didn't auction the Brian Pollard artwork. We felt that we could make more through other routes or a future event. We will discuss with Brian and let you know.

The music was superb. CONTRAST provided a range of 60s/70s hits - this band would make an excellent choice for party / wedding bookings. Let me know if you would like further details and I will put you in touch.

Josie Newton - this girl has got talent. Forget about "Britain's Got Talent". Plymouth's got talent! Check out her songs on http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=323042522. Josie is featuring on BBC Radio Devon on Wednesday morning ~7.30a.m.

We can start planning our next events in more detail now. We are looking for an acoustic concert in March featuring some of Plymouth's finest talent.

Keep spreading the word, and checking out this log for details of future events.

Many thanks

Top prize

Top prize for the raffle or auction will have to be the original Brian Pollard picture. Thought to be worth in the region of £200 - £250. There isn't a font size big enough to say "thank you" to Brian for donating this fantastic prize.

Not sure if this will be raffled or auctioned - we will see how many people turn up on the night. 25th October - Mount Pleasant Inn - 7.30pm onwards.

It's all looking pretty good!

Come and help us make this a huge success!

Thank you
