A display of donated Tanzanian art work at Lowes Court has raised ££437.50 for the Cumbria Rungwe Community Link (CRCL).

The artworks up for sale were Batiks that had been brought over from Tanzania in 1994 by Jennie Payne.

Sue Cole, a Volunteer at Lowes Court Gallery, said: “It’s been a pleasure to help raise funds for the CRCL with a lovely display.”

The CRCL are hoping to put on a larger display of work at Florence Arts Centre in order to give more people the opportunity to see the beautiful work.

Rebecca Crowther, Chair of the CRCL, said: “As a charity we thoroughly enjoyed the chance to share some beautiful, genuine pieces of artwork from Tanzania and to share ideas with local artists “We would like to thank Lowes Court for offering to host our evening and the people who donated the pieces of artwork.”
