Giant artistic boost for Mayor's Hope Fund

MAYOR of Liverpool Joe Anderson's poverty relief charity has received a giant boost from a local artist.  Liverpool born Alan Heron has donated a painting of Royal de Luxe's Little Girl Giant and it is now being raffled in aid of the Mayor's Hope Fund, which raises money for local food banks.

To be in with a chance of winning the stunning piece of artwork, log on to the Mayor's Hope Fund Just Giving page and make a donation of £5 per entry. When donating, supply your name, address and email address on each donation and put the word 'Raffle' in the message box.

Mayor Joe Anderson said:- "I was delighted when Alan got in touch with this very generous offer.  The painting is absolutely fantastic and this is a great opportunity to get involved in the Hope Fund and possibly win a fantastic prize.  I hope as many people as possible log on and make a donation."

57 year old Alan has spent his working life in a range of roles from builder to community health worker, but has always been keen to pursue his ambition of working as an artist.  He has been producing community art work for more than a decade, and has also spent a great deal of his private time working with and supporting children, young people and adults with learning difficulties using the medium of art.

Alan said:- "As soon as I heard about the Hope Fund I decided to donate a painting as a way of raising as much money as possible for this worthy cause.  I am passionate about painting and it's great that I can do something I enjoy which also helps others less fortunate."

Alan's work covers a wide range of artistic styles from abstract to landscaping.  The winner of the artwork will be chosen at:- random on Wednesday, 12 March 2014, at 9pm.
