One of the “get celebrities to paint things then sell them for charity” displays has arrived at St Pancras Station for a few weeks.

The special kennels will be on display on the upper mezzanine of the station until 26 April 2018 when they will be auctioned off in aid of Blue Cross pet charity and US based Outdoor Arts Foundation.

It’s said that over 60 dog kennels have been placed at both St Pancras International and Stratford International stations.

Unfortunately, rather than being scattered around the station to catch the eye of people passing by, at St Pancras they’ve all been — dumped — in a single location next to the statue of Sir John Betjeman.

Fenced off and looking like a delivery that’s waiting to be unpacked, the dog kennels feel like they have been put in the dog house.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
