A Preston illustrator has captured the beauty of the city once more in his latest series.


David Robinson has drawn inspiration from the parks around Preston for a new series.

And he’s using some of the funds from the sale of the prints to help raise money for a five-year-old boy who has complex sensory, neurological and mobility issues.

Half of money raised from the sale of the prints will go to help Rory’s Rec fund.

Born four months premature his family are fundraising for Rory to visit the Family Hope Centre which is coming to the UK from United States.

David said: “These would make nice Christmas presents and I thought it would be good to help Rory’s parents, Sally and Henry, who I know well.

“As well as drawing the Preston parks I have also created an A-Z of Preston. It was a bit of a challenge for some of the letters.

“Last year’s illustrations were really popular so I am hoping these will be too.”
