Desire to help after Exeter fire leads to art-inspired fundraising

Property Search Group has announced plans to help rally Exeter’s legal community to raise money for Devon Community Foundation’s Fire Fund, by launching an art inspired campaign with the potential for a lasting legacy.

 

PSG has commissioned Devon artist and illustrator Sara Nunan to create a painting of a day in the life of Southernhay, historically the city’s legal hub. The region’s law firms have the opportunity to support the fundraising effort by choosing one of their colleagues to feature in the street scene. The legal community will then be invited to a charity auction, in early spring, to bid on the painting and prints for their offices. The campaign has already gained support from Exeter City Council and the Devon and Somerset Law Society.

 

PSG is the leading independent provider of quality conveyancing searches in England and Wales, with local offices in Plymouth and Langport. Andy Towers of PSG explains more about the campaign:

 

“The idea behind Southernhay Life came about after talking to colleagues in Exeter keen to provide support following the devastating Royal Clarence fire. Many of the region’s law firms have been based in Southernhay, at one time or another, and have a real attachment to the city’s historic centre. The Devon and Somerset Law Society even had its first meeting at the Royal Clarence in 1808.”

 

Andy continues: “The artwork will commemorate this rich heritage, in an original and contemporary way, while creating a lasting legacy for Exeter’s historic buildings and members of the region’s legal community.”

 

The Fire Fund has already raised over £20,000 and helped staff and small businesses impacted by the fire. Devon Community Foundation, appointed by Exeter City Council to coordinate the fundraising, is now looking to contribute remaining funds to a relevant local cause, as voted for by the local community at the end of January. The money raised by the Southernhay Life campaign will go to the chosen cause.

 

Andy says: “We are working with Astley Media in Exeter to deliver the Southernhay Life campaign and look forward to uniting with our colleagues, in the legal community, to pay tribute to the city’s heritage and raise money for the Fire Fund’s chosen charity.”
