Anthony Giles hopes to raise money for a Kent charity by painting 20 pictures in 12 hours

A Thanet artist is planning to take on an artistic challenge by producing 20 oil paintings in 12 hours.

Anthony Giles, a contemporary landscape artist from Ramsgate, is taking up the challenge in the hopes of raising money for Pilgrims Hospices on Friday, June 29.

The public are invited to watch the masterpieces being created at the Pie Factory in Margate, and once Mr Giles completes all of the paintings, they will then be exhibited for sale to raise money for the charity.

Mr Giles said: “I have lost five close friends and family over the last two years to cancer and Pilgrims Hospices provides wonderful care not only for the patient but also the family.”

The artist, who also provides paintings for London exhibitions, is also displaying 30 pieces of work at the Belgian Cafe in Ramsgate between Saturday, June 23 and Thursday, July 12 to raise funds for the Kent charity.

Regional Fundraising Manager Karen Kenward at Pilgrims Hospice said: “We are so grateful to Anthony for giving his time to raise money for Pilgrims Hospices.”
