Well-known Midlands sculptor Sarah Richards will be holding a raffle to raise funds for Angels’ Care Centre in Howick. A stunning bronze Pangolin, which usually retails for about R14 000 in galleries, will be raffled, with all the net proceeds going to the care centre.
Sarah wrote in an email newsletter: “As restrictions ease and we settle into level 3 of the Covid-19 way of life, there are still so many children without food, warmth, educational stimulation and medical help.
“Through the sale of my editioned bronzes during the Covid-19 lockdown we managed to raise R15 000 for Angels’ Care Centre. So, a big thank you to all those who bought sculptures for your support.
“Now for something different; I have decided to raffle one of by bronze Pangolins, with all net proceeds going to Angels’ Care Centre in Howick. Tickets are only R200 each and you could be the winner, while helping Angels’ Care Centre to do their amazing work.”
