Famous names from the world of showbiz are showing their support for a charity art sale that raises money for the fight against breast cancer, for the charity Breast Cancer Now.

A number of sketches, doodles and paintings drawn by various celebrities and also some featured artists are to be exhibited in Suffolk and auctioned off online to help raise money for charity.

Art For Cure’s Make Your Mark sale began yesterday with bidding for individual paintings ending on May 8. Contributors include the likes of Ed Sheeran, Dame Judi Dench, Joanna Lumley, Rob Brydon, Andy Murray, Eddie Izzard and Jim Broadbent.

The exhibition is part of what is expected to be the largest contemporary art show outside of London in 2016, with more than 80 artists featured at Glemham Hall from April 30 to May 2.

Founders of Art for Cure Belinda Gray and Sally Ball, were both treated for breast cancer in the last four years. They have also received submissions from top artists such as Vanessa Gardiner, Henrietta Dubrey, Maggi Hambling, Michael Speller, Carol Peace and Paul Vanstoneto to be exhibited.

Breast Cancer Now not only raises for money to help find a cure but also helps those suffering and others affected by the disease.

If you are staying at our holiday parks in Suffolk across the May Day Bank Holiday, check out the exhibition at Glemham Hall, and maybe make a bid on one of the paintings. It is all for a worthy cause. See some of the paintings here.
