Thinking of home: Manchester art auction for Shelter

Thursday was our Manchester-based charity art auction, 'Thinking of home'. The pieces, created by some the city’s famous faces, creative industries and those who have lived experience of homelessness, helped to paint a picture of what ‘home’ means to us all. Guests were invited to bid on the artworks in both a silent and live auction, led by actor and comedian John Thomson. All lots were sold anonymously and we raised a fantastic £4k for Shelter in the process, with plenty of drinks and delicious canapes along the way. Many thanks to everyone who joined us for a really special evening!
