Artist Jack Vettriano is leading the support to restore Loanhead’s community garden.

After the garden was damaged by fire, local artists have rallied round to donate works of art for a charity auction.

The event, organised by Midlothian Council’s regeneration team, will take place at The Kabin, Mayburn Walk, Loanhead, until 5pm on Friday, November 4.

Mr Vettriano has donated a framed mini print of ‘The Sparrow and the Hawk’ and a signed copy of his book, ‘Jack Vettriano: A Life’.

There will be artwork by Midlothian secondary school pupils as well as pieces by artists Alan Herriot, Alison Kinnaird MBE, Jenni Hamilton and Reside project artist in residence Susan T Grant, photographers Malin Widstrand and Craig McBeath.
