Charity Art Auction

In aid of Douglas Macmillan Hospice

A selection of our artists have painted and decorated some used and unwanted skateboard decks, donated by our local skaters. These will be auctioned off at the show with 100% of the money raised going to Douglas Macmillan Hospice, a specialist palliative care provider in North Staffordshire for adults, the majority of whom are affected by cancer.

Payment must be received at the end of the auction and it will be cash only.

Check back for photos of the completed decks.

We cannot confirm which animals they'll be bringing but amongst their collection they have a variety of snakes, lizards and spiders, pygmy hedgehogs, foxes, meerkats and a giant tortoise called Tank.
