John Lyon’s 2019 Secret Postcard Competition and Auction proved a huge success, with almost 200 cards submitted and almost £1,250 raised for charity.
With 183 postcards created by pupils, parents, staff and a handful of special entries from well-known artists, the two-week auction in October saw some some fierce bidding for the postcards, which were displayed on the School website and are still available to see further down this page.
At a special exhibition in the School’s Mall Gallery to mark the end of the auction, it was revealed £1,223 had been raised, every penny of which will go to London North West Healthcare Charity.
We thank everyone who submitted postcards, with special thanks to those from outside the School: Jane McAdam Freud, Daniel Cordas, Srabani Ghosh, Brin Edwards, Pam Zenkawich, Keir Menzies, Grace Adam, Georgia Peskett, Christina Verden, Lydia Woods, Morwenna Farrell, Bethany Vargeson, Izzie Atkinson, Danny Bokenham.
Every postcard submitted by a John Lyon pupil was also automatically entered into the Secret Postcard Competition, with the best artworks selected by guest judge, renowned sculptor Nathaniel Rackowe.
