The charity will auction a collection of 25 bespoke headscarves designed by some of Britain's leading artists, including Sam Taylor-Wood and Antony Gormley.

The ticket-only event will be held in the Deutsche Bank Lounge at the Frieze Art Fair on 17 October in London's Regent's Park. Bids can be made online from 6 October, and bidding continues on the evening.

The trust chose to auction the bandanas because many teenagers diagnosed with cancer lose their hair.
