Avondale Thank You auction raises over £2,000 so far
Avondale Community events in Southwark has been leading a series of Thank You events to commemorate the 345 soldiers from Southwark who lost their lives in WW1. The project aims to thank each of those who served by getting local community groups, schools and other artists to express their thanks through arts and crafts.
Activities included a Thank You art auction, which raised £2,070 on the night, along with two planned market days including the sale of a large painting by artist Mark Anthony. All donations from the activities will be split between The Royal British Legion and the Chelsea Pensioners.
