STAFF at a charity shop are investigating the history behind an oil painting which was donated missing an artist’s signature.

The painting, handed in the the RSPCA shop in Quay Road, Bridlington, features a scene of Bridlington Harbour and includes a boat named “fascination.”

Shop manager Ann Robson said: “It looks like an amateur painting. It is the history of it and if it is anybody’s boat, because it could mean something to someone.”

If anybody has any information on the painting, or the boat featured in it, can call the RSPCA shop on 01262 679038.
