Throughout December, the staff at Castle HQ have been busy collecting a range of food and gifts as part of the Love Brum: Bags For Brummies appeal this Christmas.
The Bags for Brummies campaign asks local people to donate goods or care packages to give to Birmingham's homeless community this Christmas. From food to toiletries, clothes to confectionary, we have been inundated with amazing contributions.
The generosity of Castle HQ throughout the week will brighten the festive season for Birmingham’s homeless community.
To signify the end of the First World War, Nic Joly released a follow-up to 'Never Forgotten', the theme of which reminds us that all of the lives lost during the the four years of war from 1914-1918 were golden, and should be honoured to this day.
'Golden Lives Never Forgotten' was launched on Friday 2nd November as an edition of only 11 pieces, and the first ten artworks sold out within a record three hours! The eleventh and final piece from the edition was auctioned as part of Nic's ongoing fundraising for The Royal British Legion - raising an incredible £3,200!
This November at Castle Fine art HQ, two lovely volunteers braved the shave in support of Children in Need. They donned their yellow onesies with painted faces in true Pudsey fashion.
Cheered on by all at HQ, this was followed by some equally brave gents, offering their legs to be waxed. The amazing volunteers have raised over £1000, helping children all over the UK with life-changing projects.
In August 2014, ahead of the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, we released 'Never Forgotten' by British sculptor, Nic Joly.
Nic created this commemorative edition both to honour the lives lost and sacrifices made during WWI, and raise funds for The Royal British Legion. The edition size of 1566 represents each day the war was fought, and each sculpture is labelled on the back with a unique piece of information about that day during the Great War.
Drawing on the ultimate symbol of Remembrance and hope – the poppy – and standing less than two inches high unframed, the tiny sculptures have touched the hearts of people around the world, with Joly receiving letters of thanks from as far afield as Canada, New Zealand and Japan.
With £50 from the sale of each limited edition going to the charity, we have so far raised over £50,000!

In November 2017, artist Jon Jones produced a new oil painting depicting the notorious Peaky Blinders gang, in support of the Birmingham Children's Hospital.
'He Who Fights By The Sword' was exhibited for a month at Castle Fine Art in Birmingham's prestigious Mailbox shopping centre to promote sales of the raffle tickets, with all proceeds going to the charity.
We were delighted to present a cheque for £6,000 to Eloise Davidson, the corporate fundraising manager at Birmingham Children's Hospital, who told us that our contribution would be used to give the patientsa new and improved playground.
In July 2018, eleven lovely ladies from Castle Fine Art HQ took on the challenge of Pretty Muddy to raise funds for Cancer Reseach UK. Over a 5K course, they tackled mud pits, netting, inflatables and route volunteers armed with water pistols! With the sun shining, it was smiles all the way.
The team was delighted to have raised over £1,000 towards helping this amazing charity continue its groundbreaking work.
