This week, local artist Anne Thomson and her husband Roy donated an exclusive acrylic artwork to the Stacey West Development Fund Mega Raffle as a unique prize.
It’s a one-off piece of art that you can own by buying tickets for the raffle (see this article on how to do so), but you can also get one right away if you wish. Not an original, obviously, but a superb print of the artwork. Anne has put some up for sale on eBay, priced at £20 including delivery, for anyone wishing to own the nostalgic piece. What’s even better is this – all profit from their sale is going straight to the fund. That’s an estimated £12 per piece going to help get the second tier of the Stacey West built.
It’s a great gesture from Anne and Roy, and another fine example of people coming together doing what they can to help support the fundraising efforts. If you wish to buy one, for yourself, for a friend or family member for Christmas or maybe for your office wall, then the eBay link is below.
The print is depicting a scene from something that seems a long way away now; our National League days. It is painted from the perspective of the away terrace at Tamworth and features a diehard Imps’ fan watching his team in action. I love it, but I’ve seen other examples of Anne’s work and she’s got a great eye for creating images that capture a moment and era perfectly. Now, for the first time ever, you can own one of her images and help the club in the process.
Why are you still reading this? Go on, get over to eBay!
