Athletes, Art and Autographs

IMG_7255Age UK Barnet’s Secret Postcard Sale is not just about buying beautiful, affordable art. Some of the postcards have collectable autographs too.

We are very grateful to the following athletes who have contributed postcards to the sale.

Sir Chris Hoy MBE , former British track cyclist, eleven times World champion, six times Olympic champion and the holder of 7 Olympic medals – he is the most successful British Olympian ever.

Saracens Rugby Team – now based in Barnet, the team includes a number of International players.

Barnet Football Club – now based just outside Barnet, but still working hard for the community.

Thank you all so much.

Exercise is not just for the young – Age UK Barnet and our partner organisations run a range of exercise classes for over 55s right across the borough. From gentle seated exercise to tai chi or dance, there is something for everyone.

Our classes are friendly, affordable, fun, and a great way to keep moving and fit. Exercise is important in preventing falls as well as a range of health problems from depression to stroke.

All the postcards will be on sale on 23 Nov in Mr Simms, 781 High Rd, North Finchley, N12 8JY as a part of the North Finchley Christmas Festival. All proceeds in aid of Age UK Barnet.

And, whilst I have your attention, if you can’t make it down to the sale, there is a very lovely trilby, donated by Philip Treacy, on sale here

A perfect gift for the dapper man (or woman) about town.

See you on Saturday.
