Big Issue readers are in with a chance of winning a unique portrait of the Queen – thanks to Australian artist Heath Kane.

Kane is raffling off Rich Enough to be Batman – a screenprint and acrylic artwork exploring the idea of extreme wealth – to raise money for The Big Issue Foundation, which works to support Big Issue vendors.

It follows the success of an auction held in May which saw pieces sell for hundreds.

This time around there’s a chance to bag one for a tenner by buying a raffle ticket. If you fail, at least your money is being put to good use.

Kane said: “The Big Issue’s work, not only in their campaigning to prevent homelessness, but also in their work to give people the means and skills to make permanent changes is something that really speaks to me.

“We’re really pleased to be donating a percentage of money raised to the charity’.

The raffle closes midday Friday, 29th July 2022, and can be entered here.
