If the highest bidder is situated in and around Greater Manchester, Emma Evans will hand deliver the piece herself.

Emma Evans said: “There was no way I could just sell if for me, I want to auction it off and help raise money for all the people that are sleeping rough at the minute, especially because it is so cold, it’s really, really tough.”

The scheme currently supports around 470 rough sleepers, helping them to find long-term accommodation and rehabilitation.

“Just £30 can pay for someone to have a hot evening meal, a safe bed, and someone to talk to at A Bed Every Night, so that they can get off, and stay off, the streets.” A Bed Every Night Spokesperson said.

Emma Evans said: “The canvas was created using acrylics and Posca pens, I used vibrant colours to capture the strength and support of the city, which is why I decided to call the piece ‘We Love Our City'”.
