Woolly Wolstenholme Charity Raffle
The painting of Woolly shown here was privately commissioned and painted by Philip G Pelling. The original was presented to John Lees at the Bristol concert on 24th October, 2012, and is a mixed media piece utilising pastels, pastel chalks, ink and wax bars. The print being raffled is a high quality Giclée Fine Art Print to provide a truly superb replica of the original art work and is signed by John Lees, Craig Fletcher, Kev Whitehead and Jez Smith. Philip G Pelling attended West Surrey College of Art & Design between 1972 and 1977 and has since become a successful designer, illustrator and artist producing work for clients all round the World. More recently he spends his time in the UK and Spain creating limited edition pieces for private commissions.
Long-time BJH fan Stuart Howard very kindly donated this print to be raffled by us, with all proceeds going to the Mental Health Foundation charity in memory of Woolly.
The raffle is now closed: the winner of the draw was John Maas from The Netherlands - congratulations to him, and our grateful thanks to Stuart Howard for donating the print, and especially to all of you who bought raffle tickets for your generosity. Thanks to you, the total amount donated through the Woolly Wolstenholme JustGiving page has now passed £3,000 - a great boost for the cause of helping people with mental health issues, and a fitting tribute to Woolly.
