These will be collated into a new version of the image which, after the exhibition, will be auctioned to the highest bidder to raise funds for the 13 Sussex hospice care providers.

Maggie Thurgood, leader of the project, said: “It’s been great fun being part of creating this image to honour the Queen’s extraordinary reign whilst at the same time raising much needed funds for our local hospices.”

The artwork will be on display in Cross in Hand from Thursday (June 2) until Monday (June 6) from 11am to 5pm as part of the Waldron Jubilee Jamboree.

Auction bids will be taken throughout the exhibition and online here
