A giant piece of artwork is set to be created live in Skipton as a tribute to the NHS.

Street artist ‘Roo’ will be transforming a 3.6m x 1.5m canvas at the Art in the Pen event at Skipton Auction Mart on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th August.

The piece will be in recognition of the work the NHS have carried out during the pandemic and will be donated to Airedale Hospital once completed.
