Buy an original Edinburgh painting to support Kindred Scotland

Kindred provides information, advocacy, emotional support and guidance to families of children with complex needs and have been based at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children for almost 30 years.

Having a child with a serious medical condition means you go though a roller coaster of emotions, life completely changes, finances can alter and home and work life may change.  Sometimes families need support and guidance to ride this wave.

When my son was diagnosed with haemophilia, I remember the disbelief, anger and then acceptance roller coaster, the juggling hospital life and home. Managing practicalities like looking after our daughter while our son was in hospital, spending time as a family, managing work patterns and paying the bills. 

Kindred are there at that time to give a helping hand, everyone will have there own unique journey, but as a parent-led charity most of the staff have ridden a similar wave, and they can guide you in the right direction and offer a listening ear to make life a little easier while you come to terms with the news.

When the worst news come you want everything else to go away so you can spend time with your family and Kindred help people find both emotional and financial support so they can focus on what is important.

Give to this vital service whilst buying an original painting of Edinburgh’s famous skyline

A favourite place of mine to draw, this ink and watercolour painting shows Edinburgh’s iconic skyline from Calton Hill on a sunny spring day in the capital. Drawn from just outside the Old Observatory House it includes a number of well known buildings as well as the Dugald Stewart Monument in the foreground.

The original painting unmounted measures around 26 x 20cm, or 10 x 8 inches.

Usually an original piece like this would be priced at around £150 but hopefully I can raise a little more for such a good cause. 100% of the price you bid will go to Kindred Scotland. I will cover the cost of postage worldwide to the successful bidder.

You can make you bid in the comment box below or email me direct at contact@edinburghsketcher.com. Comments won’t show until I have approved them.

The auction will run until midnight on Saturday evening, 16th June and I will reveal the successful bidders name on Sunday morning.

Who wants to start me off at £50?
