Hoodwinked is a fantastic opportunity to support our charity partner, Nottinghamshire Hospice. All the Hoodwinked sculptures will be auctioned at the end of the trail to raise funds for the Hospice – an independent local charity serving people across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire who have been told that their illness cannot be cured as well as supporting their families.
All Hospice services are provided free of charge, but with only a small proportion of funding coming from the NHS, the Hospice needs to raise over £7,000 each day to continue to be there for our local communities. The work of the hospice is made possible thanks to the generous support of businesses and individuals.
On Thursday 18th October you will have an opportunity to buy a unique piece of art when the robins go under the hammer with TV auctioneer Charles Hanson from BBC’s Bargain Hunt.
The auction will take place at St Mary’s Church, 40 High Pavement, Nottingham, NG1 1HN. Doors open 6.45 pm with drinks and canapes on arrival. Auction starts 7.30 pm and should finish at approximately 10.30 pm. Tickets are £22.15 (including booking fee) and are available to buy now.
If you’re unable to make the auction, you can still be in with a chance of owning a unique piece of art, by bidding online now at https://bid.charleshanson.com/m/view-auctions/catalog/id/3

“Nottinghamshire Hospice is delighted to be partnering Nottingham City Council and Wild in Art in delivering Hoodwinked across the city centre and in the hearts of our communities. We believe the smiles, curiosity and mischief the trail will bring will make summer 2018 sensational. Together with sponsors, artists and those who ultimately purchase the sculptures, we want to create a legacy for all those who will benefit from this precious investment in our city and our people. We are thrilled that part of that legacy here at the hospice will be the opportunity to continue to provide vital support to communities across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, and to touch the lives of those families who don’t yet know how our services could support them in their darkest days.”
Rowena Naylor-Morrell, CEO Nottinghamshire Hospice.
