Canberra Cancerians charity auction

Hi everyone,

A friend is organising a charity auction at the Canberra Cancerians Ball – they raise money for cancer research.  She is looking for donations of paintings etc for the auction.  I gave a couple last year, and got a few commissions as a result, and I wondered whether anyone else would be prepared to donate work this year.  It’s an A-list kind of event (I never go; it’s much too posh).  Could you email me if you’re interested?
