I've launched my art raffle this evening! If you think you'd be interested in entering, all of the details are at the link provided.
In short, I'm running this raffle because I've been selected to be an escort at this year’s Rose of Tralee festival in August.I also want to take the opportunity to raise funds and spread more awareness for the fantastic charity Pieta House. So I'm using my art and providing all of the prizes myself to do this.
