With three weeks left before the deadline for artwork, the auction already has more than 250 postcard-sized original drawings and paintings by celebrated artists and designers, as well as by pupils from St Richard’s Catholic College.

The funds raised from the auction will be donated directly to the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

All items will have a starting bid of just £1 regardless of whether it has been made by a famous name or a young art student.

However, bidders will not know the identity of the artist until they receive their purchase.
