Secret Postcard Competition raises money for UNICEF and promotes the arts

The 2024 Secret Postcard Competition and Auction, which took place during May, was a wonderful School initiative that encouraged and promoted involvement in the arts, whilst raising money for charity.

This year’s chosen charity was UNICEF, and there were over 100 original pieces of artwork contributed by pupils, parents/guardians and staff from both the Prep and Senior School, as well as a selection of professional artists including Maya Coleborn, Sarah Levin, Vika Gorbikyamka, Andra Placiutescu and Kaya Kligh.

Bidding was open to everyone across the John Lyon community, including friends and family, during the two-week auction period. This was followed by a special exhibition for all in the School’s Mall Gallery with all entries on display.

It was fantastic to see such a high level of engagement with this initiative and we were pleased to have raised an incredible £452 for a very worthy cause. Thank you to everyone for their contributions.
