An Axel Scheffler original illustration for £2!
Yes, this wonderful illustration by the great and much-loved Axel Scheffler could be yours for just £2. But how?!?
This year, Macmillan Children’s Books celebrates twenty years of publishing the no.1 best-selling picture book duo in the UK, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, a collaboration which started with A Squash and a Squeeze.
To mark the occasion, Axel Scheffler has created a piece of 20th Anniversary artwork, which has been used across commemorative material. Macmillan Children’s Books has donated the original artwork to Farms for City Children, who are running a “digital raffle” to raise money to support their on-going work.
This means that rather than go to the highest bidder, everyone gets a chance to win. Whether you decide to enter once or one hundred times is entirely up to you, of course!
How to enter the raffle?
Entrants (from the UK and Eire only) must pay a £2 entry fee to Farms for City Children through their MyDonate page . The raffle closes on Monday 3rd June 2013. Full details on entering can be found on Farms for City Children’s official website.
Farms for City Children already has a strong literary connection, author and former Children’s Laureate, Michael Morpurgo, founded the charity in 1976 with his wife Clare.
Good luck all!
