We are delighted to announce that the lucky winner of the print kindly donated by professional artist Carol Taylor was Anna Ludwig. Anna has installed the print in the music therapy room at Kilbryde Hospice and is delighted to be able to share this beautiful piece of art with the people that she works with. We are sure you will all agree this is a lovely gesture by Anna and a very fitting home.
