From now until Christmas Eve we are selling raffle tickets for a mystery gift wrapped limited edition sighed framed print by our talented and much loved local artist Kate Lycett.
This print is wrapped and displayed on the wall in our Picture Gallery. Raffle tickets are available in person only during our opening hours from now until 10.00 am 24th December. Tickets are £5 each cash only and proceeds will got to Watermark Fund. Watermark is a charity very close to our hearts having been set up after the tragic 2015 Boxing Day floods that hit Calderdale.
The draw takes place live in Heart Gallery at 11am Christmas Eve. One lucky winner will be going home with this stunning prize worth £210 for just a fiver. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful Christmas present?
Jan won the raffle in 2017 and here’s what she had to say about it: “I had coveted a Kate Lycett print for a long time. In December 2017 my husband and I bought each other a raffle ticket for the mystery print in Heart Gallery. When Alison phoned me on Christmas Eve to say that my name had been drawn as the winner I didn’t believe her at first! I was still in a daze when I went to collect it from the gallery later that day.
The print was ‘Catch your breath’, a view from the top of the steps leading up to Whitby Abbey. My granddaughter climbed these steps when she was three to raise money for Little Hearts Matter, the charity that supports children like her who were born with congenital heart defects. I think of how proud I am of her every time I look at the picture.”
Sophie was our delighted winner last year and this is what she told us: “I’ve always longed for a Kate Lycett print. Now I have one, it’s like being part of a special gang of admirers! ‘Peacock Moon’ has pride of place on my office wall. It touches my heart every time I look at it. Thanks again, Heart Gallery, I’m so grateful. x”
As the old saying goes “You have to be in it to win it” and both Jan and Sophie were delighted to get the phone call on Christmas Eve from us … it could be you this year! Tickets £5 from now until 10 am Christmas Eve x
