Mayor’s Charity Fundraiser Commissions

Call for artists to submit artwork to mayor's fundraiser.

Call for Young Artists & Designers

Get seen and help the Mayor’s 2020-21 Charity Fundraiser!

Chris Gay, Devizes’ Mayor, is looking for a handful of young devizes artists & illustrators to produce artwork for her chosen charities.

This year has been particularly difficult with so many events everywhere being cancelled, including most of the Mayor’s usual fundraising activities.

Profits from this intiative will go to Chris’s two chosen charities ~ Alzheimer’s Support, Sidmouth St. & Devizes CIL, Independent Living.
