‘Every Horse Remembered’ artwork raises £1200, for Brooke Horse Charity.
Link up with Artist Stacey Moore
Last Friday saw two talented animal-loving entrepreneurs join forces to raise funds for Brookes ‘Every Horse Remembered’ campaign marking 100-years since the end of the First World War.
Artist Stacey Moore, known for her stunning drawings of Dales wildlife and Leyburn-based Hannah Russell, who writes books about her miniature Shetland pony Little Alf, joined together and created a commemorative piece of artwork which was put up for auction at the Brooke Gala Dinner this Friday.
The event, at Headlam Hall in Darlington, attracted an audience of around 100 people, including OBE Alastair Stewart and chief executive Petra Ingram.
A grand auction, conducted by Alastair Stewart OBE, included the “Every Horse Remembered” artwork by Ms Moore and the original was sold to an anonymous bidder for £1200 in the auction. The money will go towards the Brookes “Every Horse Remembered” campaign, marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War remembering the lives lost. Hawes-born artist Stacey Moore, who was a guest, at the ball said: "It was an honour to be asked to be involved and I'm very happy that it raised valuable funds for such a fantastic charity."
The artist's Gallery in Hawes is also selling 500 framed limited edition prints for £120.
Caroline Robertson, Senior Regional Fundraising officer, said: "It was an unforgettable occasion and everyone at Brooke is thrilled that 'Every Horse Remembered' raised such a lot of money."
