Brighton tapestry artist Tina Francis is sharing the love by making a donation to The Argus Appeal for each sale of a specially designed bag.

The canvas bag, based on one of her tapestry kit designs, includes the phrase Brighton Has My Heart and costs £8.

Tina, who is based at the JAG Gallery in Madeira Drive, says she will give £1 to the appeal for every bag sold in the run up to Valentine’s Day and for the rest of this year.

She said: “With Valentine’s coming up I thought this was a good time to raise awareness of what I am doing and I am hoping to raise as much as I can for the appeal.

“I live locally and the bag has been produced locally so I wanted to support a local charity as well.”

The Argus Appeal supports good causes across Sussex.

The bags are available by visiting the gallery, calling 07979 854649 or going to
