Award-winning artist, Lindi Kirwin, 61, is supporting St Ann’s by donating a percentage of the sale of a bespoke Florence Nightingale painting to the charity.
The A1 sized creation, which is on sale for £995.00, honours the Year of the Nurse 2020. Lindi has pledged £500 of the proceeds of the sale to St Ann’s, choosing to support our hospice in memory of her father, who was a volunteer driver at the Heald Green site.
Lindi said: “2020 marks 200 years since Florence Nightingale’s birth and I wanted to give to St Ann’s during the pandemic. I believe it’s right to put something back in life.”
The Cheshire-based artist is selling her painting online with free UK postage and packing, with potential customers able to view the painting via appointment, outside of lockdown restrictions.
Lindi is a notable artist, who offers commercial, private, and public art, as well as commission work and workshops.
Thanks to Lindi for thinking of St Ann’s and for offering to make such a generous donation. It’s been a difficult year for us, but as the Year of the Nurse draws to a close, I’m really proud of the way all of our nurses and other staff have risen to a challenging time and ensured that care can continue for our patients and their loved ones. That care only happens thanks to the support of people like Lindi in our local communities, so thanks again to her for her support. Rachel McMillan, Chief Executive of St Ann's
