Artists in Richmondshire are raising money to help victims of the bush fires which are currently ravaging parts of Australia.

Hawes pencil artist Stacey Moore will tonight auction off an image she has drawn of a koala.

All money will go to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery fund.

Stacey said: “Like many others I have been left shocked and saddened by the devastating fires in Australia.

“It is totally heart breaking to see the photos everyday and hear that one billion animals have lost their lives.”

To take part in the auction visit her Facebook page.

It will take place from 8pm on Thursday.

  1. Thank you. My daughter’s farm was saved from the mega NSW fire earlier this week and her partner is out fighting fires tonight. It is an horrific situation and your help will be greatly appreciated. I was born in Hudswell and lived in a Richmond. Visited in a July during your heatwave – would you like our current heatwave in exchange for some rain? 44 degrees tomorrow lol
