Sheldon School Library Fundraiser

The new Sheldon School Library
We are raising money to help fund the refurbishment of our school library. We are Wiltshire’s largest comprehensive and are keen to renovate and refurbish the space to make it much more modern and a better fit-for-purpose library and information centre for our pupils and staff.  We have an excellent record of charitable fundraising and have raised tens of thousands of pounds over the years for causes and charities ranging from Wiltshire Mind to Children in Need and Sport Relief. By supporting this cause close to home, we aim to improve the learning experience of all learners and staff at Sheldon School for many years to come.
The Sheldon School Postcard Auction is a fundraising auction to raise money for our new library and learning space.
We are auctioning original postcard-sized artworks by celebrities, artists, writers, notable people in our local community and further afield.
The Sheldon School Postcard Auction is an opportunity to get your hands on an original work of art and support our whole school library refurbishment project, with all funds raised going directly to the new library fund.  
The auction will be held at the Autumn Fundraising Ball at Sheldon School on 20th October 2018. So far, we have been fortunate enough and are very grateful to have been donated postcards, artworks and signed photographs from a wide range of people. Our donors include: Dame Judi Dench, Frank Skinner, Alan Bennett, Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards, Julia Donaldson (author of 'The Gruffalo' and many more children's favourites), Gervase Phinn, Jack Whitehall, Eddie Redmayne, Bill Bailey, Stephen Fry, Peter Brown (renowned Bath artist), Maisie Williams, as well as an original postcard artwork by artists Gilbert and George. 
Especially noteworthy is an incredibly exciting donation from British artist (of Angel of The North notority), Antony Gormley. He has personally donated an original framed artwork in support of our library fundraising. We are delighted to have received such a prestigious piece and look forward to its sale too!
