A very memorable Caption for me this year. I have been trying to raise money for a new sports training wheelchair & Rollator for over three years now. Caption were kind enough to allow me to submit donated art (special thanks to Dave Gibbons & Bryan Talbot for donated art) for the wheelchair fund to a mini version of the now legendary Caption auction raising £100.00! I raised a further £80.00 selling books from my collection.
Then as I was about to start my workshop I was presented with a further £100.00 by the committee, as they had done better than expected with the main auction! They expected me to run a workshop after that! I could barely speak. The total allowed me to purchase a rollator and took me over the halfway mark for the wheelchair, so thanks to everyone involved it means more than I can say.
I did manage to complete the workshop and everyone seemed to have fun producing some excellent if twisted work! But given the theme was a timewarp in the Big Brother household what do you expect!
Finally special thanks to Jay & Selina for being my chauffers for the weekend.
