Original artwork created by iconic celebrities such as Kylie Minogue, Sir Rod Stewart, Will.I.am, Ellie Goulding and Sir Tom Jones will be proudly exhibited and auctioned next week, in aid of the Willow Foundation.

Alongside them will be work by acclaimed artists, including JJ Adams and Quiet British Accent, sporting heroes Francois Pienaar to John Terry, celebrated children’s Illustrators Peter Firmin (Bagpuss) and many more.

Bob Wilson, formed Arsenal player and Willow Foundation co-founder and president, says: “This much anticipated art spectacular takes more than a year to collate. Together our artists, illustrators, actors, singers and sports stars create the most fantastic collection of original artworks and we are extremely grateful for every contribution.

“By choosing to support Willow they are helping to fulfil many more Special Days for young adults living with serious illness.”

The exhibition, Stars on Canvas, is now in its fifth year in aid of the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days.

Stars on Canvas provides an opportunity for collectors and fans to own a unique, signed piece of artwork by their much-loved artist, illustrator, singer, sporting hero or actor, with bids starting at as little as 99 pence.

Sport stars Ricky Hatton and Cesc Fabregas, artists Kim Haskins, Tom Lewis, Sarah Graham, Pure Evil and Rayford will also be exhibited.
