Wynyard artist Jan Suter is throwing her weight behind bushfire fundraising efforts by raffling one of her beautiful watercolour paintings.
Tickets sales for the raffle will be donated to the Animal Welfare League of NSW, with the lucky winner choosing one of the pieces (to the value of $2500) currently on display at the Wonders of Wynyard in her exhibition A North West Collection.
Animal Welfare League NSW is a registered charity that has been operating for more than 60 years. They are currently assisting with efforts in fire-stricken parts of NSW, providing veterinary care through their mobile vet clinic and mobilising teams to deliver food and supplies to livestock and wildlife in several fire-affected areas.
Jan’s brother Rob Willcox and her nephew Ewan Willcox are both fighting fires as part of the Somersby Bush Fire Brigade, while her sister-in-law Gillian brought her attention to the Animal Welfare League of NSW.
“A lot of people are wondering what they can do to help,” Jan said.
“This is my way of helping out a cause that is probably not getting as much of the money that is going to the bigger charities.”
Among A North West Collection’s 15 watercolours are lovingly depicted images of Table Cape, The Nut, Sisters Beach, the Table Cape Lighthouse and Marrawah.
Tickets are $10 each and available to buy at the Wonders of Wynyard Exhibition Centre. Phone orders are also welcome for ticket sales.A North West Collection is on display at the Wonders of Wynyard Exhibition Centre until January 31.
