David Robinson is selling a limited edition of 250 signed and numbered copies of his Tokyo Jo’s print.

As David is on the committee for Kidz 4 Kidz he will be donating the sale proceeds to the volunteer run performing arts company that gives children from all walks of life the opportunity to participate in theatrical productions.

He is aiming to raise at least £7,500 towards an all-terrain adaptable wheelchair for a six-year-old boy called Alex who was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2 (SMA2) in 2017.

SMA2 is a genetic neuromuscular disorder that affects the nerve cells that control voluntary muscles.

The wheelchair will cost a total of £14,500 and can be used for the rest of Alex’s life because as he grows the chair can be adapted to suit his height and build.

To purchase the prints visit the Dave Rob Shop and to find out more about the crowdfunding to help Alex visit the Just Giving website.
