An art exhibition raised hundreds of pounds for a homeless accommodation charity at the weekend.

St Andrew’s Church in Old Church Road hosted the event run by Art-4-All, a group of enthusiastic artists that meets on Wednesday afternoons from 2-4pm at the church.

A variety of artistic creations were on show including Christmas cards, handmade bags and framed pictures, with a total amount of around £600 raised for Andrew House, which provides accommodation for recovering addicts.

Cakes and refreshments were also available for guests to enjoy courtesy of the church’s café.

John Rostron, member of the church, said: “The Art-4-All exhibition went very well.

“Incredibly we raised around £600. The final figure is still to be determined but that will be close enough.”

The exhibition was the latest in a series of events being held by St Andrew’s Church in support of Andrew House, including cream tea and poetry days. Future fundraising events include a concert and organ recital.
