A charity art exhibition is set to help raise funds and awareness for Timebank.
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.”

“It could go like this. An hour of gardening equals an hour of IT support, which might equal an hour of cake baking which equals an hour of home repairs. The exchanges can go on and on.”
This fundraiser will allow Timebanks to support even more people to learn new skills, find companionship and connect with their communities, she added.
