This week Simon and Liz donated a chainsaw carving sculpture for Liverpool Hospitals Charity. It will be auctioned off at their annual ball next week to raise money for the incredible work of Liverpool Hospitals. And some good news for our blog readers is, you don’t have to be at the ball to bid! So you too could own this lovely oak sculpture while contributing to a great cause. Keep reading to find out more about the charity, the event, and Simon’s sculpture…
About the Liverpool Hospitals Charity
Liverpool Hospitals Charity is the registered charity for the Liverpool University Foundation Hospitals Trust, which includes The Royal, Aintree and Broadgreen Hospitals. Each year they run events and facilitate fundraising to:
- provide the latest state-of-the-art equipment which helps achieve the best possible outcomes for patientsand
- create an environment that gives the best experience for patients and families.
Simon originally hails from Liverpool. So, as well as the hospitals doing amazing work worth supporting (especially during the pandemic), there is a personal connection with the city and hospital. That link means it’s fantastic to be in a position to help the charity in its fundraising goals.
About the University Hospitals Charity Ball
The ball is an annual fixture in the charity’s calendar, and their biggest, most prestigious event. In fact, some of you may remember it from our blog about previous sculptures Simon has donated. This year the ball takes place on Friday 1st October in Liverpool’s Titanic Hotel.
Guests this year will enjoy a variety of entertainment including, the only and only Pete Price, Deana Walmsey from The Voice and magic from Andrew Dean. There will be music from a live band (Up All Night) and a chance to win big at the casino tables. As well as all that there will, of course, be an opportunity to bid on Simon’s Oak Lady sculpture!

About the Chainsaw Carving Sculpture for Liverpool Hospitals Charity
The sculpture is a unique ‘Lady in Oak’ carved by Simon, and he and Liz hope bidders love this sculpture as much as they do. She’s an early edition to their gallery collection and one that evokes very happy memories of a very special time in their lives. She has an air of sophistication and will add a touch of class to any home, business or garden.
The piece would normally be commissioned at £1200
There will be a live auction at the ball, but the good news is that you can also bid on the sculpture by emailing [email protected].
