Anthony Wooding, who is also Kerseys solicitors managing partner, and Jenny George have each put a painting up for sale, with bids starting at £330.

Mr Wooding’s painting Arriving at Lesvos will support Suffolk Refugee Support, while The Guardian by Jenny George will raise funds for Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue.

The works are on display as part of a free exhibition at Kerseys in Lloyds Avenue, which features 20 works by the artists.

Bids can be made from this Friday and closes at 5pm on March 30, where the winning bids will be announced on April 1.

The exhibition will run until Friday, July 13, and is open each day from 9am-5.15pm.
