Conceived by Merseyside-born artist Christian Furr, who also curatted the exhibtion, and Vaughan Davies, Liverpool Love’s main priority was to raise money for local charity Claire House Children’s Hospice, with a gala auction of all the works on display.

The works on display included special pieces by three brothers who are all affected by the same genetic disorder, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Twins Dan and Sam, 17, and their younger brother Tom, 14, have been visiting Claire House for the past 10 years, where staff give them and their family invaluable support and help them cope with their condition.
