Artists at Home raise £3,216 for The Upper Room

Artists donate their work to an online auction

Artists At Home have raised £3,216 for The Upper Room, which supports homeless people in west London. The group of artists, who open their homes and studios to the public each summer, held an auction of their work last month to raise funds for the charity.

“Artists at Home are delighted to be able to support the Upper Room this winter” said their chair Kathryn Davey.

“It’s such a challenging time for so many people, and the Upper Room are currently feeding around 120 people each day, their busiest time ever. Thank you to all our amazing artists, supporters and bidders for their incredible generosity in enabling us to raise money for such an exceptional charity this year.”

“An outstanding effort”

Iain Cooper, Interim CEO, The Upper Room added:

“We are extremely grateful to and humbled by the extraordinary efforts Artists at Home have gone to in raising this amazing amount of money for The Upper Room.

“From the creativity involved in producing such exquisite works, to the generosity of thought towards people undergoing particular hardship right now, through to the bidders being as enchanted as we were with the pieces, it has been an outstanding effort.

“I am sure their new artworks will look great in their homes. This amount of money enables our amazing team of staff and volunteers to keep people warm and fed at a very difficult time for them.”
