The star prize in our raffle to be drawn at our FunDraising event on 17 April will be a signed artist proof sample from the Tower of Babel project by artist Barnaby Barford.
The Tower of Babel project is currently on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and tells an array of stories about the capital city, our society and economy, and ourselves as consumers. The Tower comprises 3,000 unique bone china shops, each depicting a real London shop photographed by Barnaby Barford. The bone china shops are for sale through the Tower of Babel website.
The prize — a bone china model shop Victoria 2 Back to School is particularly fitting for a Carefree Kids raffle with both the school connection and because it is based on a shop in Walthamstow.
The lucky winner will therefore be getting a unique prize set to become a treasured possession.
There will also be other prizes including a gift voucher from newly established Clapton Craft in Walthamstow, handmade chocolates from Saw Chocolate, Italian biscuits from the Italian Delicatessen of Walthamstow, two picture frames, some hand cream and body butter collection, vouchers from Empire Cinemas and a print of Epping Forest from E17 Art House and a voucher from award winning Thai restaurant Yum Yum — something for everyone!
