The Cure3 art auction has raised over £250,000 for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust.

The charity event, which included pieces from Damien Hirst and Grayson Perry, asked more than 50 leading contemporary artists to create sculptures within small Perspex cubes.

The pieces, which were exhibited at London auction house Bonhams, were each sold for between £1,000 and £20,000.

Harvey Cammell, Deputy Chairman of Bonhams UK, said: “It is astonishingly generous of these internationally renowned contemporary artists to donate museum-quality work to this selling exhibition. Bonhams is proud to be working alongside them to support The Cure Parkinson’s Trust in its extraordinary work combatting this cruel disease.”
