Art in Aid of the Hospice
22 October 2023
My name is Mark Wilson, and have attended St. Bernard’s, Our Lady’s and now St. Mary’s for the last 30ish years. Three years ago, I was diagnosed with an incurable form of blood cancer, multiple myeloma. For the time being, I am in remission, but at some stage it will return. Life expectancy is, on average around 10 years.
Myself, and my family have had amazing support from The Hospice of the Good Shepherd in Backford, Chester and now I would like to give something back.
Last year, I did an art therapy course there, which reignited my passion for drawing & painting. Over the past 17 months, I have raised over £4,000 by selling art prints and greetings cards at craft fairs in Chester and
Wirral. I have designed some Christmas cards to raise money for the Hospice. These are 2 examples, but I do have 4 other designs.
Prices are about 75p a card, but the more you buy, the cheaper they are. If you wish to
purchase any , please ring or text 07568561272.
