An art exhibition and auction will take place this weekend to raise money for Eastwood Age Concern.

Various local artists have donated their work for the event at the Colin Dyson Centre being held today, Friday July 29 and tomorrow, Saturday July 30.

Age Concern treasurer Josie Forrest said: “There will be some wonderful paintings up for grabs and I hope we get a good turn out.”

Terry Parnham, a member of Brinsley Art Group, is donating 20 paintings. A similar event in 2010 raised £2,000.

Viewing will be between 10am and 4pm on Friday and 10am until 2pm on Saturday, when the auction will begin.
