The Harrogate branch of Manning Stainton was quick on the draw to support a major fundraising art project at a local school.
Talented young artists at Oatlands Junior School have created a series of beautifully detailed botanical illustrations featuring plants and flowers on the Red Data List, the world’s inventory of the global conservation status of biological species.
These have now been collated into a special colouring book for all ages called ‘FLORA – Conserving Our Biodiversity’, sponsored by the area’s leading estate agent.
Copies of the book are available at a cost of £5, with all proceeds going to the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.
Specialist art teacher Sam Joseph said: ‘The colouring book is a wonderful reflection of all the hard work the pupils have put into this project.
“We are extremely grateful to Manning Stainton for their generous sponsorship of the printing costs.’
Meanwhile, the school currently has its art installation, ‘Conserving Our Biodiversity’, exhibiting at the Saatchi Gallery in London as part of a new exhibition called ‘Journeys.’
