Two local artists are auctioning their artwork to raise funds for a community horse stables.

Kate Winskill and Raph Thomas, from Richmond, have created pictures of Park Lane Stables’ ponies in a push to keep the premises open.

In January it was announced that the Teddington riding school, which specialises in lessons for people with disabilities, will close unless it can raise £1 million.

An application by the Teddington Society to list the site as an Asset of Community Value (ACV) was recently approved by Richmond Council, which gives added legal protection to the site.

However, efforts are still underway by the community to raise money for the cause.

Kate and Raph’s bright prints are part of this contribution, including one of much-loved resident of the stables, Whizz, sporting his NHS logo.

Three prints are on sale with 25% going to the ‘Park Lane Save our Stables fund.

Kate’s company, 1of1 Design, has also selected a few pieces for online bidding, where the entire sale goes towards keeping the ponies local.

Of every artwork 10% will be donated to the stables, excluding those from clearance, by making a note in ‘special instructions’ at checkout.

Kate said: “If you love horses and want to brighten up your lockdown walls, these pieces give you to chance to support a local amenity and brighten your life.”

Raph is known for painting rainbow animals, which in lockdown has turned to local stray cats.
