Today we’re very pleased to launch auctions for five pieces of original, signed and dated artwork by Pip and Posy illustrator Axel Scheffler, raising money for Ukraine.
There are five different signed, dated original illustrations by Axel available to bid on, and all proceeds will go to the emergency Ukraine fundraising campaign by refugee charity Three Peas, raising funds to provide basic necessities at the Ukrainian border: food, warmth and hygiene products.
These five pieces have been created by Axel to show support for the people of Ukraine, featuring the colours of the Ukrainian flag.
Here are each of the pieces being auctioned:
Each piece of artwork is a signed and dated original – if you’ve always wanted your own original illustration by Axel, here’s your chance!
The auction will run for 10 days, and end on Sunday May 1st at 6pm.
Please do bid generously for this hugely important cause – and good luck!
You can also donate directly to Three Peas’ emergency fundraising campaign for Ukraine here.
