“My Lovely Postcards” is a project that was initiated by Veronica Brooks, a family friend of Beth Foreman who recently died in our care, aged 32. After her death, Beth’s family raised money which they donated to Sobell House in the form of the ‘Beth’s Bursary’ Fund.
The aim of the fund is to provide professional development for some of the healthcare professionals working for Sobell House and directly caring for people at the end of their lives.
We would like to invite you to be part of “My Lovely Postcards” by creating and donating a 6" x 4” two-dimensional original artwork for us to auction. By doing so, you will be helping Sobell House to offer high quality services, completely free of charge, to patients and families affected by a terminal illness across Oxfordshire.
Sobell House will mount, photograph, and exhibit all the postcards received for both an online auction and an exhibition at the Jam Factory in Oxford. All the funds raised will then go directly to the ‘Beth’s Bursary Fund.’
The deadline for submission of artwork is Friday 8th September 2017- With the exhibition running from 10th October to 10th November and the online auction available at the same time. All work will become the property of Sobell House Hospice upon donation. Although as an artist, you will retain copyright, Sobell House will be free to reproduce selected images for publicity purposes. Unsold work may be exhibited again in the future, as part of our on-going campaign to raise funds and to further promote the work of the Hospice.
I really hope you will take part in this unusual project, which will provide funds for such a worthwhile cause.
