Damien Hirst sketch offered as £1 raffle prize in Leeds

One of the world's most famous contemporary artists has donated a sketch as a raffle prize in aid of Heart Research UK. The raffle - which is by now is no doubt gaining momentum since the generous donation - will take place at Leeds City Art Gallery next month.

Organiser Dr. Jeffrey Sherwin said; "Why should only the well heeled have the opportunity of buying something special?".

It would certainly give someone an almighty early Christmas present, that's for sure. Here's a snapshot of some of Hirst's work.
