Christie’s auctioneer to sell off Patsy Palmer and Kim Wilde’s artwork to raise money for Joss Searchlight today

PUBLISHED: 11:40 14 March 2013 | UPDATED: 11:41 14 March 2013

Former Eastenders actress Patsy Palmer and pop singer Kim Wilde have donated their artwork for a charity auction being held today in Shoreditch.

The auction in Blackall Studios in Leonard Street is an inaugural fundraiser for Joss Searchlight, a charity which provides support to families of children suffering from brain tumours.

Dianne and Nigel Parkes set up the charity in 2011 after the death of their 10-year-old son, Joss, from brain cancer.

Over 100 artists have contributed their work, including Lord Foster, Brendan Neiland and Sonia Lawson.

The donated art can be viewed from 11am to 4pm, and Christie’s auctioneer Tom Best will conduct the auction tonight at 6.30pm.
