Here at the Veitchi Group, we are celebrating our centenary incorporation year

In order to make this special date even more memorable, we are dedicating the whole year to charity. Our staff suggested 20+ fundraising activities and 17 charities that we will support. On the 22nd of December, during the Veitchi Group Centenary Auction we will finalize our campaign and give all the raised funds to charity.

So what is this Traveling Painting?

The Traveling Painting idea was inspired by the abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock . He was well known for his unique style of making paintings by dripping paint on canvas.

We thought that we could borrow this technique and create something unique that could be sold during the Veitchi Auction at the end of the year. The painting visited all of our branches where it received a fresh layer of paint every time. Everybody at The Veitchi Group had a chance to participate in this fun process transfering our good will on to canvas.

Additional Paintings

3 additional paintings will be produced by the charities themselves. Bauer Radio's Cash for Kids  and the Children's Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) will be producing their own paint splashing masterpieces.

Once all of these paintings are finished, we will launch an online auction so that everybody would have their chance to make a bid. 100% of the sold painting value will be going to the charity who produced their own painting.
