Bid for original, signed artwork by Axel Scheffler and help raise money for War Child

A couple of week ago, Pip and Posy illustrator Axel Scheffler led a fantastic storytelling session to a packed house at the Southbank Centre as part of the Imagine Children’s Festival. And today we’re very pleased to say that we’ll be auctioning some of the work that Axel produced on the day in aid of charity. There are six different pieces available to bid on, featuring some of Axel’s best-loved characters, with all proceeds going to War Child.

War Child is a London-based charity that provides life-changing support to the most vulnerable children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war. Working in Congo, Central African Republic, Afghanistan, Iraq, Uganda, Syria and Gaza, War Child’s vital work includes creating safe spaces where children can escape from battlefields or dangers of life on the streets, getting children into school or informal educaton after conflict or poverty has cost them the chance of an education, helping young people and their families learn the vocational skills they can earn a sustainable income from, and helping children get their voices heard and their rights met, and helping local people to protect their children better.

And here’s what you can bid on right now!
