TLC charitable activities have had to be postponed until the current crisis is over. TLC remains committed to resuming fundraising activities and programmes with each partner centre as soon as possible, whilst maintaining online support and guidance for doctors and surgeons around the world.

The auction and exhibition will still take place, though it is likely that it will have to be postponed. The situation will be reviewed regularly and decisions will be made which bare in mind the safety of artists and supporters alike. We will do our best to keep everyone informed.

If you need to contact anyone urgently from TLC then please email and a trustee will get back to you.

Thank you to everyone who has helped to make our work possible, and is continuing to support in whatever way they can.

Is the auction still on?

Yes, the auction and exhibition will still take place, though it is likely that it will have to be postponed. We do not know yet what date the auction might be moved to, and we will keep artists and supporters informed as soon as any decisions are made. Things are changing each day, so we will do our best with the information we have. It is likely that the exhibition will still be at South Hill Park, and the auction will still be held by Ewbank Auctions.

Are you still receiving artworks

Yes! Though Jennie and Aimee are away from their desks for the time being, artists can still send artworks to the address given on the invitation letter. They will be stored until work can continue and the artworks will be framed (if not already framed) and digitalised for the printing of the decks of cards. 

I’m an artist and I’ve changed my mind about what card I’d like to design, please can I pick a different one?

You can, but I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until Aimee is back at her desk to choose your card, as most cards have been allocated. 

I’m not going to be able to create my artwork in time for the original deadline of the 1st of June, is that a problem?

No it is not a problem, please don’t worry about rushing to meet the original deadline. Although the revised date of the auction is to be confirmed, we are happy to accept artworks after the original deadline. 

Are you still looking for artists to design cards?

There are still a few cards which have not been allocated, so if you know of an artist who would like to take part then please ask them to get in touch and we’ll respond to them as soon as we’re back at our desks.
