Pickfords supports WellChild at exclusive art event at Christies

29 Oct 2019

Over £300,000 raised for the children's charity

On October 28 th Pickfords supported children’s charity WellChild by providing logistical support to an exclusive art event held at Christie’s Auction House.

Event Creative director Chris Westbrook carefully curated donations from over 40 of the world’s leading artists including established greats such as Anish Kapoor, Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley, Rankin, Harland Miller and David Yarrow.

The artwork was auctioned off at Christie’s Auction House. The artists donated, and in some cases created new pieces, for the exclusive auction in aid of WellChild.

The collection sold for more than £300,000 and all the profit from the event will go towards WellChild’s work supporting children with serious health needs and their families.

Pickfords packed, crated, stored, delivered and installed the artworks to a pre auction preview at Christies and then repacked the art to bring back to its Fire Safe warehouse in London.  The team redelivered the art back to Christies for the auction event and will be co-ordinating the onward delivery to the buyers within the UK and around the world.

Pickfords Managing Director Mark Taylor said “We were delighted take part in the event to raise funds so WellChild continues to carry out its important work to support seriously ill children and young people at home”
