A cheque for €2,500 from Susan Caplice Design and Art and The Gaslamp Gallery in Gorey was proudly presented to the Make A Wish charity, following the sale of especially created range of pieces as part of a unique partnership.

The partnership, which began in August last year, saw Susan of Susan Caplice Design create a limited edition range of framed Irish beach art designs, and these were sold on Susan's website and in The Gaslamp Gallery, with all profits from sales going directly to Make A Wish.

Susan creates her Irish beach art from her home near Oulart, spending a lot of time on local beaches like Ballymoney and Morriscastle, collecting materials for her work.

'I have had my designs on display and sale in The Gaslamp Gallery for over a year now but when Claire offered to sell the Make A Wish designs for no profit I was thrilled, and I knew the campaign would be a success,' said Susan.

Claire O'Connell of The Gaslamp Gallery said: 'We had Susan come in on a few occasions, weaving her magic with pebbles and stars and personalising her Make A Wish designs for our customers. We would like to thank our customers who bought Susan's bespoke limited editions here in the gallery.

'A child living with a life threatening disease will have a wish granted directly because of the money raised,' she added.
