A Stella contribution to charity

We're big fans of Stella McCartney here at the Pier for her unswerving commitment to green fashion. Now she, along with photographer sister Mary, are helping make a difference to a charity offering yoga therapy to schools for children with special needs.
Stella and Mary have both donated artwork to this year's Special Yoga Centre Charity Art Auction. Stella has supported The Special Yoga Centre for years, and this time she's given the auction a signed sketch of one of her designs, alongside a black and white snap from acclaimed shutterbug Mary. They'll be joining the likes of Damien Hirst, David Bailey and the elusive Banksy in contributing to the auction.
It takes place tomorrow, May 15th at the Twentieth Century Theatre in Notting Hill. It promises to be a high-profile affair, with support from honorary patrons Trudi Styler and Samantha Cameron. Profits will go towards the charity's new premises, helping to establish The Special Yoga Centre as the largest of its kind in the UK, providing help and support for kids with special needs like autism, epilepsy and cerebral palsy. Director of the charity, Jo Manuel says:
"The art auction is the main fundraising event of the year and this year is extra special. The Centre’'s move to West Hampstead will provide us with a ground floor space, accessible to wheel chair users and providing facilities children and families are in real need of.”"
