Clarence was pleased to attend the excellent charitable art exhibition Down to the Bone on Tuesday night.
The event, held at the ONCA gallery in the heart of Brighton, was a rousing success, raising lots of money to help rescue abandoned and mistreated dogs in Portugal and Spain. All proceeds raised will go towards neutering programmes, improved conditions in local sanctuaries and transport to the UK for the lucky few.
Speaking after the event, Clarence said: “The Down to the Bone private view was a great night, opening in fine style an exhibition held for such a fantastic cause. The work that Karen Lippitt and Sara Abbott are doing to save street dogs in Portugal and Spain is both vitally important and timely with the monies from DTTB going directly to improve the welfare of a number of dogs that would face utterly inhumane conditions and, most likely, agonising death otherwise.
Karen and Sara are also being brilliantly assisted by Jenny Wells and her colleagues at RSCPA Brighton, which itself needs financial support to save UK street dogs too. So if you're in Brighton before next Monday, do go along to ONCA with some dog food to add to the DTTB "mountain". And spend some money on the stunning artwork as well. It really will make a big difference to the lives of the dogs that need it most.“
The exhibition is open to the public at ONCA Gallery, 14 St George's Place, Brighton and aims to inspire a creative response to a changing environment. 24th-30th September, entry fee is one can of dog food.
