Mike produced this wonderful drawing with our artist charcoal which we then auctioned off.
The auction and the sale of subsequent prints has raised in the region of £500 for the amazing local horse charity The Horse Course, who work with young people 8-24yrs old and families in Weymouth.
“I didn’t know that this charcoal that I draw with, also helps the horses to stay healthy and reach their peak condition - It's so fitting that I use it for these studies.” - Mike Chapman.
“It’s wonderful to see the charcoal being used in this way first hand – I think the work Mike has produced will be a great benefit to the Horse Course and hope we raise lots of money for their cause.” - Jim Bettle founder of The Dorset Charcoal Company.
Charcoal has been recognised for millennia as a wonderful aid to a healthy digestive system. Charcoal is super absorbent, as it has a huge surface area within its structure. When introduced to the gut it restores the correct PH balance in a passive way by collecting toxins before being “passed” out of the system naturally.
The Dorset Charcoal can be used as a fuel to cook on, added to soil to boost nutrients, and as a food supplement for animals.
