The work, entitled Ou est la Gare?, will be auctioned at the SpectrumArt 2009 event in Cornwall this weekend. Stella Vine, Rankin and Damien Hirst are also among leading contemporary artists who have donated work to the event.

The charity runs art sessions led by leading artists for service users on a converted barge in Penryn, called the Art Ark.

"Spectrum's work hits a chord with a lot of artists," said Lascelles Thornton. "For all of us, art is the ultimate means of communicating."
