Eight original watercolours by artist Louise Cobbold, first featured on the official Wolves matchday programme covers this season, are now available to own via an eBay online charity auction.
This second auction of four across the 2018/19 season includes stunning signed originals featuring the likes of Rúben Neves, Raúl Jiménez, Harry Kane and Eden Hazard, and runs for ten days from Thursday 6th December to Sunday 16th December, 9pm.
Each of the paintings have featured on the front cover of Wolves’ new-look matchday programme this season, garnering praise for Louise’s work throughout the footballing community and on social media.
Each painting comes mounted, framed and signed by both Louise and the featured sports star, and offers a unique opportunity to win a valuable piece of original sporting memorabilia whilst raising funds for Cure Leukaemia, Good Shepherd Ministry Wolverhampton, Race Against Blood Cancer and YMCA Black Country.
With the festive season now upon us, the paintings would make an ideal Christmas present for Wolves-supporting loved ones and winners are guaranteed to receive the artwork before Christmas.
Louise commented: “We were delighted to see over £6,000 raised from the first auction, with the paintings of Nuno and Pep both going for in excess of £1,000, and Ashley Barnes of Burnley not far behind at £990.
“This money will make a huge difference to the four fantastic charities being supported this season and we hope that this is just the beginning with three more auctions, including this one, still to come.
“We are so grateful for the continued warmth towards this project, from those bidding for paintings to those who share our posts on social media, not forgetting those behind the camera whose amazing photos I get to illustrate.
“We can’t wait to get this next auction started and sincerely thank every individual who continues to encourage and support us on this journey.”

- Matt Doherty
- Troy Deeney
- Raúl Jiménez
- Harry Kane
- Jonny Castro Otto

Limited Edition prints of Louise’s paintings are also available, with a minimum 10 percent of profit from sales being donated to Cure Leukaemia.
