One in a Million, by prize-winning animal artist Lois Sykes, is among 34 works of art, including an oil painting and a piece by Damien Hirst, being auctioned next month to raise money for Demelza Hospice Care for Children.

The charity hopes the event will raise at least £25,000. Its work caring for life-limited children costs £3.5m a year. Demelza runs an eight-bed hospice in Sittingbourne, Kent, which provides an art room and music programmes to help the children it serves to make the most of their lives.

The money will also help Demelza's long-term aim of providing a similar hospice in London. The auction takes place on 11 October in Tunbridge Wells.
