Pots for PoTS
Thank you to everyone who joined in with our Pots for PoTS 2020 fundraiser. Together we raised over £2,000 for Pots UK.
To everyone who donated pots, auctioneered, placed bids, won pots, joined the zoom, shared a post, liked or commented or got involved in any way, thank you!
On Sunday 25th October 2020, PoTS awareness day, Cambridge Makers held their first Pots for PoTS event.
Through a series of two auctions they sold pots made and donated by local makers to raise money for for Pots UK a charity supporting those with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.
As many of you are aware Cambridge Makers’ Creative Director Susannah has this chronic condition that can be variously debilitating. Being able to run Cambridge Art Makers on a flexible basis makes it easier for Susannah to live with this condition. In an effort to help other people with the condition, and as an excuse to make lots of pots herself, she developed this fundraising idea.
We are incredibly grateful to all the potters who donated and collaborated on work for this auction. Namely Frank Logan, Janet Edwards, Joy Voisey, Lucy Blake, Pip Hughes, Steel Haughton and Victoria Ashdown. Special thanks to Caroline Amory who enabled a lot of potting! We are also very grateful to Peter Lefort and Colin Hamilton who were our trusty auctioneers and Cambridge Makers, our host.
