canvas - Support the NHS artwork in the shop window of Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge (1)

A one-of-a-kind canvas on display in Nantwich is being auctioned off with the proceeds going towards an NHS charity, writes Jonathan White.

The artwork, entitled ‘Support the NHS’ was created by talented Nantwich-based artist Tony Denton.

Money raised from the art auction will go towards Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity, which supports patients, their families, and staff at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The art piece, which measures 35×35 inches, was inspired by all the staff who work for the National Health Service (NHS).

‘Support the NHS’ can be viewed in the shop window of the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge on High Street in the centre of Nantwich.

It is displayed alongside the painting of 100-year-old fund-raising war veteran Captain Tom Moore, that Tony Denton recently produced and donated to the town.

The auction is being held online.
