PORTSMOUTH residents are invited to donate wood to a boat-building art project.

On Sunday, representatives from The Boat Project will be at Southsea Castle, and want Portsmouth residents to join them – with ‘significant pieces of wood’.

Art group Lone Twin will take anything from pencils to pianos which represent part of the donator’s life, and use them to create a 30ft sailing boat.

The boat will be sailed along the south coast up to London in June next year, to mark the opening of the London Olympics.

Lone Twin artistic director Gary Winters said: ‘We’re excited Portsmouth will host a Donation day. Bring something that’s part of you, with a story to tell. Come and tell us that story.’

The event takes place from 10am to 4pm.
