AN ART display depicting Oxfordshire scenery raised hundreds of pounds for the homeless community.

Oxford Bury Knowle Art Group challenged its members to paint Oxford city and the wider county for a charity exhibition.

They showed their work at New Road Baptist Church in Bonn Square over the weekend, and raised more than £700 for Oxford Winter Night Shelter.

The organisation is run by churches and volunteers and helps to provide shelter, bed and breakfast for rough sleepers.

Entry into the exhibition was free but artists donated a portion of the proceeds raised through painting and postcard sales.

Lord Mayor of Oxford Colin Cook opened the fundraiser on Thursday and it ran until Saturday.
