Duchess invited to charity sale

Have your say

THE organisers of a charity art sale are hoping for to get the Duchess of Cambridge at this year’s event.

Church Walk Charities’ first art sale, held in October at the Unitarian Meeting House, Churchgate Street, Bury St Edmunds, raised money for St Nicholas Hospice Care and organisers Simon Harding and Valerie Legg had decided the 2012 event would be for East Anglia’s Childrens’ Hospices (Each).

As soon as they heard the Duchess had become Each’s patron, they sent her an invitation. Mr Harding said: “The Duchess of Cambridge coming may just be a dream but who knows? What we can say is that we plan to send the names of the sponsors and donating artists to the Duchess’s office via Each.”
