"Shall I start the bidding at a million billion pounds?"
http://breakthrough.org.uk/ Break Through's mission is to save lives through enabling and ensuring access to improvements in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The project was organsied by Ben Moore who is the founder of Art Below. Ben asked artists to donate a painting inspired by a page 3 girl and got The Sun newspaper on board to sponsor the whole thing. Artists taking part in the project included Cathy Lomax, Goldie, Julie Bennett, Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf, and Team Beswick & Pye.
Gordon Beswick and Harry Pye's masterpiece is called Staci of Preston. The real Staci came to the V&A and seemed happy with the painting and the way the evening went.
