Marine wilderness Charity

In Sept 2017 at the Tredrea, Porthcothan I began raffling a painting, Porthcothan 17:50. I have also been selling prints of this painting and have now made prints of four other paintings.

Raffle tickets (£5) and prints (£50) are for sale at the Tredrea. All funds raised by the raffle and sale of prints (£20 per print) is to be used to buy land in South Africa to be managed as conservation areas.

There is more info on the Painting prints page and you can also contact me if you would like to buy raffle tickets or prints - maocarnegie@gmail.com

At the moment I am applying to register a charity in the UK. This will allow me to raise funds and continue with conservation work within an officially recognised organisation.

Board of trustees: Michael Carnegie, Angie Snelling, Tony Butt

The objectives of the charity are:

1 To continue developing an education programme that informs people about the problems conservationists in South Africa are facing up to and through outings into the outdoors encourages an awareness and appreciation of wild areas and wildlife.

2  Develop projects that help marine wilderness conservation.

3 Provide opportunities and a structure through which people can help conservation where their efforts will be productive and appreciated.

All funds raised will be placed in the charity bank account and used for conservation projects as stated at the time of fundraising. No one involved with the charity will be paid or use funds raised by the charity for any purpose other than what is stated at the time of fundraising.

If the charity does not manage to meet its objectives the funds raised will be given to an organisation or organisations doing similar work.

In the past my paintings have been used to raise money and awareness for conservation through various organisations - Paintings for wildlife page

At meetings with people from Plymouth University and Rhodes University (SA) I have discussed plans for working with international students to raise awareness and funds with a long term ambition of buying land in SA and managing this land for conservation.

We plan to hold a charity evening at the Tredrea in June 2018
