An auction in Norfolk is selling art to raise money for a terminally ill mother.
Downham auctioneers Barry Hawkins is hosting the event to raise money for Heather Bellamy who is battling acute myeloid leukaemia.
The mum-of-four, 48, from Downham Market, has been fighting the form of blood cancer for four years. During that time she has received chemotherapy and two stem cell transplants which have been unsuccessful.
Ms Bellamy's family set up a gofund me page, called Auntie Heather's Last Chance, at the start of the year to raise £250,000 for life saving treatment in America.
The auction will take place at the Soul Cafe in King's Lynn on Thursday, July 4 at 7pm.
