Ed Sheeran's Unique Artwork Can Be Yours!

Those of you who came to Art For Cure at Glemham Hall in Suffolk in 2016 may recall we had a host of celebrity artwork up for auction, including a cat doodle from international singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran.

The generous owner of this artwork recently donated it back to Art For Cure to allow us to fundraise further and this is how we found ourselves back in the beautiful house at Glemham Hall last month, where the story of Ed's unique artwork was filmed by the BBC for one of their upcoming episodes of Flog It!

The Flog It! team were very excited by being in Suffolk with local lad Ed's art available for auction. We explained all the money raised from its sale was going to Art For Cure and further add to the £175,000 we raised at Glemham Hall over the first May bank holiday weekend last year.

Signed by Ed and dated 2016, this very special art is not dedicated to anyone specific, making it a perfect collectable for any Ed Sheeran fan, of which there are now millions, following his global chart success!

We are delighted to have recently made a donation of £62,000 to Cancer Campaign In Suffolk to support specific breast cancer projects within the county over the next 2 years.

Our second exhibition of art and sculpture was hosted in the beautiful house and gardens of Glemham Hall in May 2016 and an astonishing £175,000 was raised over the weekend for breast cancer care, research and support by the generous commissions of artists’ sold work.

80 artists and sculptors exhibited, including the acclaimed Maggi Hambling, Jelly Green and Paul Richardson from East Anglia, as well as leading international artists Michael Speller, Carol Peace and Henrietta Dubrey.

8,000 visitors enjoyed an exciting weekend of art workshops, live jazz, fine dining from the chef Peter Harrison and a thrilling celebrity art auction including work from Ed Sheeran, Joanna Lumley, Andy Murray and Judi Dench. 

Following the exhibition, we made a donation of £100,000 in 2016 to the leading national breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now, towards a secondary cancer research project.  

This recent donation of £62,000 to Cancer Campaign in Suffolk supports three breast cancer services in Suffolk, focusing on a new wig service and beauty treatments, the support of free complimentary treatment courses for those affected by cancer, as well as post-surgical breast exercise classes and a DVD.

We are delighted to not only be contributing to vital national research, but also supporting such worthwhile breast cancer services in Suffolk for those going through a breast cancer diagnosis.

Save The Date – Our third fundraising exhibition will take place in Suffolk from 5th to 7th May 2018. This is in addition to other interim art events being organised to raise vital funds needed for the care and cure of breast cancer.
