Over 200 local artists had the opportunity to showcase their finest work in an exhibition with a difference.

Cambridgeshire Timebanking, the CHS Group and Cambridge Hub hosted the event on Saturday November 12, in which canvases were bought from Connections and then sold anonymously, with all proceeds going to charity.

Each canvas was sold for £45, with all unsold canvases going for sale online.

Caline Easey, from CHS and Timebank, said: “The Connections Campaign has been a fun event to bring together local artists, professional and amateur from each Timebanking community.

“We saw a wealth of fabulous art work from everyone that took part, and we are overwhelmed by how people embraced this concept and felt inspired to take part for a good cause.”
