Hen Harrier Day art auction

We've got a great secret postcard auction for you. You'll recognise some famous artists, but look at everything: there's lots of brilliant art here. Click 'Bid now' to take a look and make a bid.

For Hen Harrier Day Online, on 8 August 2020, we're proud to be working with Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. One way we are doing so is with this Secret Postcard Auction. We've asked artists (and some folk who are not best known as artists) to donate a small painting or drawing, signed on the back but not the front. So the auction will be totally anonymous: no one will know whose work they are bidding on until they have won!

The auction will raise funds to help secure a better upland environment for wildlife, ourselves and our children to enjoy. All proceeds will go directly to .hen harriers and protect our uplands through the work of the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust ‘Wild Peak’ project and Hen Harrier Action.

We already have more than 70 auction lots (nearly all are A5, quite a bit larger than your average postcard) and you can start viewing them now: click on the 'Bid Now' button or on the picture opposite – one of the brilliant pieces for which you can bid. The auction opened on 31 July and will run until a few days after Hen Harrier Day Online: it will close at 5pm sharp on 14 August.
