A limited edition print has been launched in a bid to raise funds for Our Kitchen on the Isle of Thanet.
The kitchen, headed up by Sharon Goodyer, is delivering free food to Thanet’s vulnerable, self-isolating and to food banks to help people cope during the coronavirus crisis.
The print, by artist Sophie von Hellermann, called Good Vibrations, is a hand-pulled lithograph in an edition of 50 with each one hand-coloured by the artist and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Our Kitchen.
The sale has been launched by the Counter Editions gallery in Margate.
