It was great meeting you at the New Art Gallery today, Lynn. I think the unveiling went really well. I’d like to share here the description we’ve added to your picture on the website samaritans247.org:
==============
It is an original pencil and charcoal drawing by a local artist and is entitled A Call For Help.

There is something a little disturbing about the picture, but you’re drawn to the face and the humanity and as you look I think you see the struggle and turmoil that is going on. The small handset being used places the image very much in the modern age, though the emotion invoked is timeless.
==============
All the best
Andrew

thank you so much Andrew it was a lovely afternoon and well supported
