Charities have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic, with 46% reporting a drop in income and 33% saying their financial position has deteriorated, finds the NCVO. While Limited100 itself is a fledgling business, we feel duty bound to support charities where possible, and also to support our contributing artists with their endeavours.
An opportunity arose to donate edition 1/100 of Tim Wallace’s ‘1968 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 in Scotland’ artwork to an upcoming charity auction in aid of Haven House Children's Hospice, who support local children and families, from birth, who are seriously ill and have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
Simon Wright, founder, Limited100 added “Haven House has a titanic target of £4.4 million each year to be able to continue to care for the children and families they support. Of this only around 19% is funded by the NHS and local authorities. While it’s only a small contribution on our part, we hope our limited-edition automotive wall art helps Haven House as part of their forthcoming charity auction”
Tim Wallace, Artist, added: “Haven House do amazing work and the team work very hard to give the children the best life possible. It was a great opportunity to do our little bit to help them raise much needed funds so that the support can continue for the children and indeed the parents.”

The Jaguar E-Type is a British sports car that was manufactured between 1961 and 1975. Its combination of beauty, high performance, and competitive pricing established the model as an icon of the motoring world. The 4.2-litre straight-six E-Type's claimed 150 mph top speed, sub-7-second 0 to 60 mph acceleration, unitary construction, disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering, and independent front and rear suspension distinguished the car and spurred industry-wide changes. The E-Type was based on Jaguar's D-Type racing car, which had won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three consecutive years beginning 1955. Captured in the Scottish Highlands by Tim Wallace, this wall art is available on a limited run of 100 units, ever, in a range of print formats.
