Shelby’s painting sells for £10,000.00 as Kent based Children’s Charity the ‘Friends of Shelby Newstead’ raise £58,000.00 in a Christmas Winter Wonderland!

Whilst the theme was a ‘Christmas Winter Wonderland’, there was a warm welcome awaiting 600 guests at the Kent Event Centre in Detling on 16 November 2019 as the ‘Friends of Shelby Newstead’ raised £58,000 helped by Shelby’s stunning work of art selling for £10,000 on the night! This takes the tally to over £925,000 raised since the Kent based charity was founded in 1996. A very successful night for the charity and more importantly for those that we are committed to helping and may approach us for help. May we say a huge thank you to all who attended, to those that supported the event and to those without whom it could not have happened”.

2020 will be a 25 year celebration of the ‘Friends of Shelby Newstead’ raising money for children with serious illnesses and the date has already been set for 14 November.
