Keeping To A Street Art Theme,

there is a wall in Northumberland, in the UK.

that is receiving a lot of attention, photographs by Sally Pattison via the Chronicle Live, 

created by Sally Pattison, the money raised from the paintings will be given to help protect local wildlife. Pattison donates the proceeds  to Northumbrian Hedgehog Rescue Trust, who rescue, care and rehabilitate hedgehogs, as the Chronicle Live details:

Sally, 43, from Bebside, in Northumberland, said: "People have been bringing their dogs to meet their painting and all of the portraits are of pets from the local area so it's been really nice for the community to see."

The mural, which is currently being created on the corner of a disused building on Front Street, in Bebside, is the latest in a series of creations from Sally, who discovered her talent while studying art at school"I posted in the local community Facebook group asking what people thought about creating a mural of pets and I have been overwhelmed by the response." each portrait has been added to the wall for a £5 donation to the Northumbrian Hedgehog Rescue Trust, and while Sally can no longer take requests for pets to be added to the mural, a Go Fund Me page is still taking donations towards her chosen charity, which can be accessed here, what a neat wall.
