The Peninsula Art Auction has done the sums and raised $65,000 for Lyttelton Primary School.

Up to five hundred people attended each day of the October weekend event, viewing 270 artworks donated by 110 local artists in the pop-up gallery at Lyttelton Primary School.

“This is incredible, and we want to thank you once again for LPC’s generous sponsorship, which helped to make the running of this amazing event possible,” said Rachael Hannah on behalf of the Peninsula Art Auction organising committee.

Two hundred fifty attended the gala evening and live auction, where 20 works went under the hammer, including one from Lyttelton legend Bill Hammond – an artist’s proof etching on paper donated by the Hammond family.

“We hope everyone enjoyed the Gala evening as a great night out and that people are enjoying a new piece of artwork or two in their home or workplace,” she added.

In its 20th year, the Peninsula Art Auction is run by the Lyttelton Education Charitable Trust to raise funds for Lyttelton Primary School.

LPC was a proud sponsor of the community event for the display boarding and lighting.
