Charity sale of late artist’s work

Multi-talented Alan Malpass left a legacy of good when he died last year - from his work for Christchurch Methodist Church, Sussex Wildlife Trust and Highwoods Preservation Society to his output as a skilled amateur artist.

Alan died of leukaemia. Now his widow, Pam, is putting his artworks to practical use by staging

a sale at Christchurch Methodist Church Hall in Springfield Road in aid of the charity

Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

More than 80 of Alan’s works, from pencil and pen-and-ink drawings to pastels and watercolours, will be on sale on Saturday, April 25 from 10am until 4pm. The works are mounted but most are unframed. They will be priced from £15 to £50.

Alan’s subject matter reflected the things he held dear – natural history, fast cars, lovely landscapes and beautiful buildings.

His sketch pad was at his side even when gravely ill in hospital.

There will also be an opportunity for people to purchase badges and/or key-rings or just make a donation to Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. Light refreshments will be available.
