Sexual health charity THT is celebrating after a charity auction in which a Tracey Emin artwork brought £30,000 for their funds.

Tracey Emin was invited by auctioneers Christie’s and Champagne producer Piper-Heidsieck to turn a Nebuchadnezzar into a work of art to be auctioned to support her charity of choice – and she decided to donated all the proceeds to Terrence Higgins Trust.

Sir Nick Partridge, Chief Executive at Terrence Higgins Trust, said: ‘The funds raised from the sale of this stunning artwork will help us be there for people who are in desperate need. Tracey is a long-time supporter of our charity, and we are immensely grateful for everything she has done, and continues to do, to help improve the lives of people with HIV.’
