The art of giving

When David Pytches, an attorney at Walkers, relocated from Cayman to Jersey he wanted to make a lasting leaving gift to a charity that had captured his heart – the Cayman Islands Humane Society.

An accomplished contemporary artist in his private time, David decided to auction some of his stunning abstract pieces to his colleagues at Walkers. He offered the pieces displayed in his office and the highest bidders took home the treasured works of art in exchange for their donation.

David raised a CI$1,600 and donated all of the proceeds to the Humane Society to assist with sponsoring a dog cage (at a cost of $600) with the balance dedicated to the in-house Spay and Neuter Programme.

David, who worked closely with PJ Walsh, became interested in the Society when he learnt that she was the Society’s new Foster Care Programme Manager. Responsible for training and co-ordinating foster homes for animals requiring short-term care, PJ inspired David to become involved in fundraising for the charity.

‘David was excited he was able to utilise his artistic talents to contribute to such a worthy cause,’ PJ said in a press release. ‘The money raised will certainly make a difference to all the animals in our care, and we thank him for his gift and wish him well for the future.’
