Many of you will remember the sale of “River of Dreams” tour posters that raised over £400 for Hayley’s UNICEF projects in Ghana earlier this year.
I had hoped to do something similar with “Winter Magic” posters and obtained Hayley’s support for this back in September. Since then I have been in contact with Bedlam Management in the hope of obtaining a quantity of these. However, it is now looking highly unlikely that many ‘mint’ copies of this beautiful poster will survive. Only 50 copies were ever produced and the majority of these have been circulated to venues and used.
It is therefore probable that this will be the only opportunity for collectors to obtain one of the few mint copies to be retained by/returned to Bedlam Management and it is for that reason I have chose to auction any copies I receive. I currently have two; one of which Hayley has signed for me and for which I have pledged a significant donation to UNICEF. I hope to have at least one or two more before the end of the year.
I would particularly like to thank Kathryn and Nicola at Bedlam for their help and support with this initiative – I couldn’t have done it without them.
Details of the auction will follow in my next post.
Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year Grant

My grateful thanks to those of you who participated to make this another successful venture. I don't intend to reveal the results until Hayley has been informed so, in the meantime, here are a couple of images of my Winter Magic poster and Hayley's very special message.
