We're really excited to be holding the 8th annual postcard auction on Margate's Harbour Arm. Make sure you get Saturday the 3rd of September in your diaries now - it's a chance to get your hands on some fantastic bits of art and support the work we do to help people affected by abuse.
We need postcard sized pieces of art to auction, they can be of anything you like but please sign them on the back, it's a secret auction! Last year we had talented artists from Thanet, the UK and as far away as India who were able to help people living in our refuge.
Post your artwork to - Postcard, Oasis, PO Box 174, Margate, Kent, CT9 4GA or dropped off at “The Oasis Shop”, Margate, Kent CT9 1ES (by Friday 8th July). Remember to let us know who you are so we can pop your name in the catalogue!
We need help to man the gallery! We keep the gallery open in the week before the auction to let people come and admire the artwork, we also need some volunteers to help us run the auction on the day. If you think you can spare a couple of hours to help make the auction a success then give Dee an email on
There's always a real buzz to the Harbour Arm on auction day - come along, have a glass of wine and go home with an original bit of artwork. You won't miss out even if you can't make it on the day - pop into the gallery to put a bid on any of the work that catches your eye during the week.
We are extremely grateful to everyone who gets involved and makes this possible. Last year the auction made over £7000 with entries from Tracey Emin and Grayson Perry as well as David Cameron and Jo Brand. The money is vital to helping families overcome domestic abuse.
