ARTISTS across the area have had the chance to showcase their doodles as part of an exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre this week.

Peterborough based artist Tony Nero is holding an exhibition at the arts centre in St Mary’s Street, Stamford, until April 3 and as part of it he is asking people to draw a teddy bear on a blank canvas he has put up which will later be sold in aid of the Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus.

He said: “It’s going really well. In fact the first canvas I put up is nearly full so I think I might have to put another one up.

“I’ve had really good support from visitors to the exhibition so far.”

The charity helps people who suffer from spina bifida and hydrocephalus, which are conditions that people are born with and affect the brain and spine.

Tony, who works for the charity part-time, said: “Every now and then I like to do something to raise funds off my own back.

“I haven’t got a target, but I want to raise as much money as possible.”
