    Thumbs up Print auction for kids

    Fellrunning artist Rod Holt has kindly donated two fine art prints to raise money for the 185 children from Fukushima now with thyroid cancer following the nuclear disaster, and tsunami orphans, on the 6th anniversary of the triple disaster in Japan. If you'd like to make a bid either post here or PM me and I will post the amount of the latest offers - please give the name of the print you are bidding on. The auction will close at midnight on Sunday 2nd of April and the money will go to volunteer groups who pass 100% of it on to the families. Happy bidding!

    Print 1: Narrative of a Fellrace

    7 intricate miniature images arranged vertically. Full details here:

    Print 2: Beggar, Bezier
    A beautifully textured and detailed image of a man sitting in a sun-baked doorway in the south of France with his canine companion:

    Of course if you'd like to make a donation regardless, PM me .
    Many thanks,
    Geoff Read

    PS, I was living with my family and running in Fukushima at the time, and the situation there is not properly reported here, if you'd like to know more, please see here

    I'll kick it off with 20. If I win it for that price I will consider myself one lucky sod!

    Thank you :-)

    Nice one Race the Sweeper! Come on you lot, you aren't going to let him get away with such a bargain without a fight are you? So we are at 20 for Narrative of a fellrace print. Who'll start us off at 10 for the Beggar, Bezier print? It is a gem of a thing, oozing sunlight....

    I'll start you off with 15 for this one, it's for a great cause. Would look amazing in my hall. Again, I doubt I will win it for that price. It is beautiful :-)
