Oxfam gets 1,500 painting boost
High Rise Neighbours by Derek Robertson
The painting was gifted to Oxfam by an anonymous donor
The anonymous donation of a painting to Oxfam in Aberdeen has netted the charity more than 1,500.

The shop in Chapel Street received High Rise Neighbours, which depicts puffins and rabbits on a cliff.

It turned out to be by local wildlife painter Derek Robertson. A secret auction ended with the winning bid standing at 1,550.

Shop manager, Pamela Reid, said: "I am absolutely delighted, so is Derek, the money will do a lot of good."

Mr Robertson himself will present the painting to the winning bidder on Tuesday.
