The Babylon Gallery in Ely played host to a special fund raising event for the Cambridgeshire Timebank Partnership.

Connections, a charity art exhibition, invited people to buy a blank canvas for £10 to get creative and see their own art exhibited anonymously.

The work will be displayed at the Chetwynd Room, Kings College, on Saturday November 12 from 10-5pm to be sold at £45 each.

Caline Easey, a Timebank co-ordinator said: “This is open to artists and non-artists - young and old! Your medium could be painting, drawing, sewing, sticking - whatever takes your fancy.”
