Published on: 6th December 2012

Following the month-long art auction featuring paintings, pictures and portraits created by fans of Sylvanian Families, Flair has reported that £1,037.50 has been raised for the Toy Trust.

The Sylvanian Families Study in Art exhibition took place in London during October half term, followed by an online auction where each and every piece could be bought by the public. In total over 25 items were bought, with the highest-priced item reaching an impressive £300.

Peter Brown, chairman of GP Flair, said: “We are delighted to have raised such an impressive sum for our chosen charity, the Toy Trust. I would like to personally thank all the artists, children and fans who created pieces of art for the exhibition. Not only was it seen and enjoyed by thousands of people at the Strand Gallery, but it has gone on to benefit a very worthy cause.”
