As part of Clerkenwell Design Week, Orms, The Furniture Practice and Brunner co-hosted a star studded fundraiser which raised £26,500 for The National Youth Arts Trust.

Over 150 guests attended the event that took place at the Brunner show room in Clerkenwell, London.

Patrons of the Trust, Grayson Perry and Stephen Managan conducted a lively raffle and auction with enthusiastic buyers going head to head to bid for artworks by Sax Impey, John Dolan, Lucy McLauchlan, Sarah Shamash, Stuart Melrose, Phil Smith, Kev Munday, Helen Lord, Helena Izett, and Grayson Perry.

John McRae, from Orms, said: “This is the second year we have put on an event in aid of The National Youth Arts Trust and we would like to thank everyone who contributed and helped to make the evening such a huge success.”

Winners of the raffle walked away with items that included a table donated by Stuart Melrose.

Ken Kelly, managing director of The Furniture Practice said: “I am thrilled with the help and commitment from everyone involved, including the artists who donated work and the staff from The Furniture Practice, Brunner and ORMS; it made for a fantastic event. We are really pleased with the amount raised and look forward to doing it all again next year!”
