Besi Besemar March 8, 2013

Terrence Higgins Trust (THT), the HIV and sexual health charity, has unveiled the catalogue of its 30th Anniversary Auction, which takes place at Christies in London on Thursday. March 21 from 7pm.


A rare print of Louise Bourgeois’ painting I Do, which was designed for the Freedom to Marry campaign in support of gay marriage, will form part of the lot, which also includes pieces by artists Tracey Emin, Grayson Perry, Julian Opie and Ricardo Cinalli. Get-aways ranging from a serene break in a Cornish cottage to a luxury getaway in Bhutan will also be up for grabs.

THTThe event will be a re-invention of the charity’s long-running Lighthouse Gala Auction, which has been a highlight in London’s social calendar for the last 16 years. It will mark 30 years since Terrence Higgins Trust was founded by a small group of friends in the early days of the HIV epidemic.

Genevieve Edwards, Director of Fundraising for Terrence Higgins Trust, said:

“We are thrilled to launch this auction in celebration of our 30th anniversary. Thanks to the kindness of our supporters, there will be some spectacular lots up for grabs. Thirty years since Terry Higgins’ friends set up the charity in his name, this year’s auction is a chance to celebrate the awe-inspiring level of support that still exists today. We hope our guests will dig deep and help us raise a record breaking total in our 30th year.”
