It was New York artist Bradley Theodore's canvas which fetched the highest price of the night, as interior designer Rebekah Caudwell had the winning £38 000 bid.

Maddox Gallery Managing Director and Curator James Nicholls commented: ''Caudwell Children does such truly amazing, life-changing work. Everyone at Maddox Gallery has been so touched by the stories we hear from the Caudwell Children team and we are thrilled to be able to support their work in some way. Our thanks goes to the incredible artists who have donated their work to this worthy cause and of course to the bidders. Their generosity and support means so much to us and genuinely makes a difference to the lives of so many children.''

As well as this charity event, the week was also special as the gallery played host to a rather royal guest. HRH Countess of Wessex visited Maddox gallery with Colombia's First Lady as part of the President of Colombia's first ever State Visit.
