Premier League stars show their artistic side for charity

Several Premier League stars have given up the brief space between training and nap time (that is usually occupied by story time) in order to discover their artistic side. The Willow Foundation, a charity that helps organise special days for the seriously ill, have produced 300 small canvases, each of which has been decorated by a sportsman or celebrity of some sort.

The canvases are being auctioned for charity right now, and would make a great Christmas present for difficult-to-buy-for relatives, or lovers of “Outsider Art”.
