How the money is raised
Fees to take part ( less Eventbrite commission) will be all donated to the hospices.
25% commission will be asked for as a donation from any sales of art (artist will deal directly with buyer and be given a code to make their donation directly to the hospice - initially Pilgrims Hospices where my best friend died aged 49 two years ago
I have run Plein air Kent at Hole Park for the last three years in May, Obviously this year that is not possible but as the hospices will have many of there normal fund raising activities cancelled this year i have decide to find an alternative way of engaging artists for a cause that gives them a purpose whist supporting the hospice and each other through the #artistsupportpledge
