Shelter Cymru Charity Welsh Art Auction at Penarth Pier Pavilion

Tonight was the big night.
Alex and I arrived early and had plenty of time
so we enjoyed a coffee outside on the pier.

It was a really lovely and proud moment to walk around with Alex and watch people viewing the work, going from piece to piece and deciding what they would like to bid on.

After everyone had had a good look at the exhibition
the Penarth Pier Pavilion girls and I took down all the ‘lots’ and
began sorting them into the order they were going to be shown at auction.

There was a really buzzing atmosphere and it was lovely to work alongside staff from Shelter Cymru
and staff from Penarth Pier Pavilion. Abi and I printed out copies of my rather modest floor plan and messy list of the additional lots for the girls, so we could do it in order.

I am far too organised.

The auction went amazingly, every lot went out on time and in the right order and more importantly than that every piece sold and we raised nearly £13,000 for the charity Shelter Cymru, together with the auctions in North Wales and London, Shelter Cymru raised has raised over £21,000 this year for their amazing work with housing.

This was my desk for the evening haha.

I feel privileged to of been part of something so creative and successful, in such a beautiful building, with such lovely people.

Shelter Cymru believes that everyone in Wales has the right to a decent home and that this is essential to the health and well-being of people and communities. We work closely with our sister charities in England and Scotland, but we are independent and focus solely on the needs of people in Wales.”
