Terrence Higgins Trust’s 30th Anniversary Auction took place at Christie’s on 21 March 2013.
The annual event, sponsored by Prudential plc, saw fierce competition for a range of 'money can’t buy' lots. In between bidding, guests including Tracey Emin, Nancy Dell'Olio, Jacquetta Wheeler, Fawn James, Michelle Mone and Jack Vettriano were treated to cocktails, champagne and canapés.
Lots up for grabs included artworks by Tracey Emin, Maggi Hambling, Grayson Perry, Louise Bourgeois, Julian Opie and Ricardo Cinalli and getaways ranging from a serene break in a Cornish cottage to a luxury getaway in far-flung Bhutan! The full catalogue is available to view below.
The evening raised an incredible £375,000 for Terrence Higgins Trust, with every penny going towards services for people living with and affected by HIV and sexual ill-health.
Sonya Trivedy, Head of Fundraising at Terrence Higgins Trust said:
'The funds we raised at our 30th Anniversary Auction will help to keep vital services open for thousands of people with HIV. I am so grateful to everyone who came to the event and made it happen. Ours is not an easy cause to fundraise for and yet our services have never been more in demand.
'The incredible generosity of the wonderful people who donated or bid for the Lots on sale means the world to us. It is a testament to the determination of so many to carry on the vital work Terry Higgins’ friends began in his memory 30 years ago.'
