BWR raffle painting winner

We are delighted to announce the winner of the recent fundraising raffle of an oil painting by Alce Harfield, which raised just over £1,700 to help fund the work of Bath Welcomes Refugees.

Alce donated a depiction of the Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage featuring Elton John’s farewell performance.

Sarah, pictured above with the oil painting, scooped first prize, and says, “When I got the email to say I’d won, I was so excited I had to keep re reading it to make sure it was true. It’s now hanging in my lounge, and has had lots of great comments already.

“I first went to Glastonbury in the 1980s and I loved the colours and energy in the picture.”

We wish to offer an enormous thanks to Alce for donating the beautiful painting. She told us, “As an artist specialising in painting Glastonbury Festival, a place many have been lucky enough to call ’home’ over the years, it was a natural decision to paint a special painting for those who didn’t have a ‘home’ and help raise funds for the remarkable work Bath Welcomes Refugees does.”

There will be another opportunity to win an original and exceptional Alce painting, and help raise funds for Bath Welcomes Refugees, when the Bath Art Fair returns to Bath Pavilion this September, bringing with it another BWR raffle.
