The show, which takes places in the plush surroundings of Bonhams, features work from recognised and emerging artists and has raised over £460,000 for the charity.

Past contributors include Dame Elizabeth Blackadder and Jack Vettriano and the 2014 show was opened by Alexander McCall-Smith. Past sponsors include Brown Shipley, Turcan Connell and Deutsche Bank and the event has attracted coverage on the BBC news website and in The Scotsman, Evening News, i-on Magazine and Edinburgh Life.

Macmillan’s Senior Fundraising Manager, Jayne Forbes, said: “This is a great opportunity for a local company to gain a ready-made client stewardship event whilst demonstrating their social responsibility. Sponsor packages include entry to our busy preview as well as opportunities to align your company with our popular and recognisable brand.”
