Offering art and music enthusiasts the chance to bid on a range of rare collectable items, prizes up for grabs include an exclusive David Bowie package and a signed Damien Hirst guitar.
The auction is part of an event being hosted at Abbey Road Studios on Thursday 17 November. Guests attending will be treated to unforgettable night of entertainment and fundraising. There will be live performances from a host of legendary acts including pop star Anastacia, The Real Thing and Odyssey.
A select number of auction items are open to public bids ahead of the event. Anyone interested in snapping up one of the sought-after items can visit soundandvisionauction.com. Bidding closes at midday on Wednesday 16 November.
Artist Ed Chapman said: “I’m so proud to be involved in Sound & Vision, raising money for Stand Up To Cancer’s incredibly vital work that gets new and better treatments to patients sooner. This project has been an exceptionally exciting one for me; to create a portrait of David Bowie in his iconic Ziggy Stardust persona has been an honour. I am delighted with the effect records and CDs can create. I hope this goes to a happy home and raises lots of money.”
American singer-songwriter Anastacia said: “After beating breast cancer twice, I’m really passionate to do as much as I can to raise money for research that will save lives. I’m honoured to be a part of Sound & Vision and I can’t wait to entertain and bring people together to raise money for Stand Up To Cancer.”
Stand Up To Cancer is a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4. Launched in the UK in 2012, more than £38 million has been raised in the UK, supporting more than 30 clinical trials and projects.
