Margate’s celebrity potter Keith Brymer Jones will be hosting the event which takes place online, through Instagram, between 6pm-9pm, through a partnership with West Bank London gallery owner Paul Saunders.
There have been donations from artists including Carl Cashman, Jeremy Deller, Ben Allen, Jim Star, Studio Philly, Carne Griffiths and Diff.
The auction will be under Keith Brymer Jones’ Instagram account. People can follow Keith and an automatic message will go out to all his followers with details for when the auction is going live. For updates follow #keithbrymerjones
Bunty Stalham, seven, underwent an amputation operation from the knee at Great Ormond Street Hospital earlier this month. She has Neurofibromatosis which means tumours affected the bones in the bottom of her left leg and have effectively eaten away the tibia, eventually resulting in the operation to amputate.
Her dad, Stretch Outsider gallery boss Dean Stalham, from Ramsgate, is hoping to raise £20,000 to buy an ‘activity’ leg from the USA which has various attachments. Thanks to generous donations the appeal has now reached just under £15,000.
