King’s nurses organise centenary art auction

  • Comment

Local and world-renowned artists, as well as staff and patients, have all submitted work for a special one-off auction to raise money for King’s College Hospital Foundation Trust.

Haematology nurses Joanna Large and Geke Ong organised the auction in celebration of King’s centenary in Camberwell. Fittingly 100 pieces of art have been collected for the sale.

It includes donations from Maggie Hambling, Gillian Ayres CBE, Ahmed Mustapha and John Hoyland.

Ms Large, clinic nurse specialist in haematological medicine, said: “We felt we wanted to do something that expressed our pride in the unique, creative and artistic community that we serve in south London.”

She added: “We were deeply touched by the wealth of responses and the often moving motivations that lay behind so many donations.

“We now hope that our local community will come and get involved, buy a special piece of art and help their local hospital,” she said.

The auction will take place on 12 December in the King’s Boardroom, with mince pies and mulled wine from 6pm. The auction hammer will be raised from 7pm.

The nurses were helped in putting on the event by the London-based Alan Cristea Gallery and Rosebery Auction House.

Tickets for the auction can be purchased online.
