West Dorset Community Refuge Hold Fundraising Art Show

Pilsdon Community

9:11am 26th July 2013

Artwork created by people in crisis or needing respite goes up for exhibition and sale from today in Bridport.

The Pilsdon Community in rural West Dorset is selling them to raise funds to allow it to continue providing a safe haven for those in need as it has done for more than 50 years.

 From 11 till 6 for each of the next four days starting today(Thursday 25th July), artwork will be able to view and purchase from the 'Chapel on the Green' in East Street.

Most of the proceeds go to the Pilsdon Charitable Trust, which relies on public donation to carry out its work.

Warden, the Reverend Michael Deegan, says the framework of work, rest and self respect in the Christian run organisation has been helping put lives back together again.

For more information on the charity and the sale of art go to www.pilsdon.org.uk
