Fleet Sponsors the Edinburgh Macmillan Art Show for a second year running

Fleet Search + Selection is proud to support Macmillan Cancer SupportThis year’s special 10th Anniversary Show will be hosted by prestigious fine art auctioneers Bonhams at their Queen Street Gallery. The show will run from 27th to 30th September and features over 300 works by leading Scottish Artists and Jewellers, including Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, often described as Scotland’s greatest living artist. Other prominent contributors this year are Alistair Kelly, Moy Mackay and Rosanne Barr.

This visual spectacle of Scottish Art is a great way to spend a couple of hours. Entry is free, with the opportunity to purchase all the pieces on show at the displayed price. There is also the chance to purchase a raffle ticket to win the beautiful painting entitled ‘Pittenweem’, kindly donated by Pat Kramek.

To date, the Art Show has raised over £140k to help fund the vital work of Macmillan and the success of the event has recently been recognised at the Inspiring Volunteering Scotland Awards, where the Art Show committee picked up a 2012 team award. This year Macmillan are investing £50k in refurbishing the reception of the Edinburgh Cancer Care Centre at the Western General, as well as funding four new posts for Advanced Nurse Practitioners at the centre.

Craig Phipps, Managing Director of Fleet said “At a time when an estimated one in three of us will get cancer, we are proud to be involved, once again, as a title sponsor for this wonderful Art Show and applaud the tireless work of Macmillan Cancer Support”.
