Gloucestershire based artist, Heather Gulliver, is putting one of her distinctive paintings up for auction in aid of her local air ambulance charity, Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC).
She thinks that the air ambulance crews do an absolutely magnificent job and deserve all the support they can get.
Heather’s oil-painting of choice ‘Pancratium Tenuifolium’ is worth £695 and is part of her ‘Africa’ works which shows a delicate flower in the harsh terrain. The painting will be up for auction across two weeks with an online raffle from Monday 14th September. Tickets cost just £5 and all proceeds will go to Great Western Air Ambulance Charity.
GWAAC provide the air ambulance and critical care services to 2.1 million people across Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset and North Somerset. Their team operate 365 days a year to bring lifesaving emergency medical care to critically ill or injured patients across the region, receiving over five call-outs a day on average.
As a charity, GWAAC need to raise over £4 million a year to remain operational, yet with COVID-19 seeing the cancellation of face-to-face events, they are expecting to see a loss of fundraising income this year. They rely on the support of their local communities and businesses to help them be right here and ready to respond to those in urgent need.
Vicky King, Gloucestershire Community Coordinator for GWAAC, said: “Our crews remain ready to save lives each and every day, yet we couldn’t do that without the support of our community and people like Heather, who think of us. We are incredibly grateful for the support we receive, and we’re excited to see how much this auction can raise for our lifesaving service.”
