Important 'Moooosflash' – Cow For Sale!
Here’s your chance to own a magnificent work of art and unique piece of memorabilia – and raise much-needed funds for us in the process!
‘Sunny Meadow’ is the creation of artist Nicky Chubb who specialises in flower paintings. Nicky commented:
“My paintings are an attempt to capture the burst of happiness that I always feel on finding an unexpected patch of wildflowers, or when a breeze sends a meadow dancing. I’m particularly inspired by the vivacious wildflowers, hardy heathland plants and big skies I see in the countryside around my home, and the powerful feeling of permanence and belonging that watching a familiar landscape through changing seasons can bring.”
Sponsored by Waitrose, Sunny Meadow is an optimistic cow, inspired by the British countryside in summer and by sustainable farming working in harmony with our natural environment.
Waitrose nominated The Princes Countryside Fund to benefit from the auction proceeds of Sunny Meadow. The proceeds from Sunny Meadow will be split between us and the Surrey Hills Trust Fund established in partnership with the Community Foundation for Surrey to conserve and protect the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
The auction takes place during a glamorous evening at Hampton Court Palace on 17th November 2016.
Starting at 6.30pm guests will be guided up the Kings staircase and greeted with a champagne reception in the Cartoon Gallery. This magnificent oak-panelled room overlooks the Fountain Garden where guests can gaze down at the beautiful grazing cows. Guests will then be guided to the Great Hall where a delicious three-course meal, courtesy of Rhubarb, will be served at 7.30pm before the final and most important phase of the Cow Parade gets underway – the gala auction.
Auctioneers Ewbank’s are now inviting on-line bids prior to the event…so, if you’re feeling bullish, she could be yours if the price is right!
