Liz Cleves is asking people to donate towards the Budleigh Coronavirus Support group in exchange for being entered into a draw to win a framed painting.

The support group has been coordinating the volunteer effort in Budleigh, helping those isolating themselves from Covid-19 with shopping trips, medicine pick-ups and financial assistance.

Liz’s painting is a framed ‘semi-abstract’ watercolour of horses inspired by a previous exhibition in Cornwall.

She has set up a JustGiving page and is hoping to raise £400. On Sunday, May 31, a winner will be selected from those who donated.

Liz said: “I realised they (the support group) are doing all of this running around, looking after elderly, vulnerable people, doing shopping, taking meals out to people and it seemed that if I could do some fundraising it might support their work.”
