We would like to thank everyone who made our charity art auction and open-day a success. Despite the weather, it was a brilliant turnout and we managed to raise an incredible total of £598! The art auction and jumble sale offered a phenomenal display of creative and interesting pieces, Lazy Man’s Burden played some sweet songs outside and the Food Punks team were rushed off their feet serving coffee and cakes. The event wouldn’t have been possible without the hard working team of staff, volunteers and young people, as well as the local businesses who generously donated to the tombola and catering: Traquair House, Kailzie Gardens, Cringletie House Hotel, The Tontine Hotel, Go Ape, Villeneuve Wine, Castle Warehouse, Kitsche, Forsyth’s, House of Gaia, Tiger Lily, Head to Toe, The Gift Box, A Wee Treat, Tesco and Sainsbury’s. Special thanks go to local artist and TYA Trustee Moira Stark for all her behind the scenes work and support as well as her hugely generous donation of art objects collected from around the world. Moira’s vision to share these beautiful objects with others as well as raising much needed funds for TYA was the driving force behind our event and we’re hugely grateful for her continued support.
