It has been donated by the artist and the proceeds from the auction of the work will be split between Bethany Christian Trust, Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres, Quarriers and Teenage Cancer Trust.The charities will also each receive six signed limited edition prints of Let’s Twist Again.The sale of the original paintings and limited edition prints of the First Minister’s previous three Christmas cards raised around £50,000 for good causes.Mr Salmond said: “I am a huge fan of Jack Vettriano. He is a self-made Scottish success story and his work is recognised and celebrated around the world… This year’s chosen charities – Bethany Christian Trust, Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres, Quarriers and Teenage Cancer Trust – work extremely hard to help others and are very worthwhile beneficiaries. Thanks to Jack’s talent and reputation I am sure that they will all receive a generous donation from the sale of Let’s Twist Again.” Howard Lake | 20 December 2010 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
