Signed Cynthia Lennon print on auction to benefit St Thomas Lupus Trust

The St Thomas Lupus trust is auctioning a special one-off signed print of the Beatles by Cynthia Lennon.

The original painting of the Beatles was inspired by the song 'Your mother should know' when it appeared in the film the Magical Mystery Tour, written by Paul McCartney. In the film the Beatles, wearing white tuxedos, come down a grand staircase followed by boy scouts.

Cynthia kindly gave permission for the image to be used to raise funds for the St Thomas Lupus Trust. The trust has produced Beatles notelets, still available in their online shop.

The charity is linked to the Beatles through the song 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds'. Fans around the world know about how Julian Lennon had a childhood friend, Lucy Vodden and drew a picture of her. His father, John Lennon, saw the picture and it led to him writing the now iconic song. When Lucy lost her battle with lupus in 2009 aged just 46, she was a staunch supporter of the St Thomas Lupus Trust.

This very special auction will end on 31st October which marks the last day of Lupus Awareness month in the UK. 100% of money raised at the auctions goes directly to support the charity.

View and bid on the signed print by visiting the Ebay auction site.
