Status Quo raise £100,000 for Prince's Trust
Status Quo helped raise over £100,000 for the Prince's Trust charity yesterday (November 5) at the Bonhams auction room in London.

The band asked artists and musicians, including Harry Hill, Alice Cooper, Rolf Harris and Queen's Brian May, to create original artwork out of the band's album and single covers, with the results auctioned off.

Wildlife artist David Shepherd's effort, which was made using the cover of the band's 2002 album 'Heavy Traffic', raised £17,000, reports BBC News.

Status Quo frontman Francis Rossi praised the charity at the event, saying: "The Prince's Trust is for young people that are not articulate or come from a poor background. Nobody gives them a chance.

"It's such an unusual charity. It's not the kind of charity that most people give to."
