Charity’s first ever art auction raises over £10,000

Charity’s first ever art auction raises over £10,000

Oct 16, 2017

Over 100 Islanders gathered in the St Helier Town Hall on Friday 13th October to bid on an eclectic art collection to raise money for award-winning charity Les Amis.

Jersey Old Bank Notes brought in the highest bid at the Art Auction raising £550 for the new nursing and complex needs unit. One of the most ambitious fundraising projects the charity has ever undertaken, Les Amis was delighted to raise over £10,000 towards their £500,000 target for furnishing the new unit.

Les Amis Managing Director Shaun Findlay said: “I am delighted with the turn out for the Les Amis art auction. It is the first time we’ve held an event quite like this and it was excellent to receive so much support from our island community. Art is something we can all enjoy no matter who we are, where we come from or whether we have a disability or not. Art does not discriminate and neither do we at Les Amis.”

Businesses and individuals, as well as the artists themselves donated a wide variety of art and photographs, for the auction that was led by antiques dealer Peter Le Rossignol and hosted by Sophia Bird.

The artwork included pieces by Edmund Blampied, Ian Rolls, Gerald Palmer, Eric Walker, Diana Bowen, Susan Lintell, Christine Capps and photographer Alexander Mourant.

Lauren Carré PR, Marketing and Fundraising Manager for Les Amis, said: “Thank you to everyone who donated works of art for our auction or helped us organise this ambitious event. We are truly grateful for everyone’s support. Opening the Island’s first nursing and dementia unit for elderly Islanders with learning disabilities and complex needs is something that will benefit the entire island.”

Les Amis is aiming to raise £500,000 to fund the equipment for their new complex needs unit. With an aging demographic, the Island is preparing to care for an increasing number of older residents requiring specialist dementia nursing care. Les Amis will care for those Islanders with complex needs and learning disabilities.
