A SUFFOLK artist who created the cover of an Evening Star charity CD will see his work auctioned this weekend.

Michael Coulter painted the cover of the Cool Yule CD, which was created as a joint project between The Star and Radio Suffolk to raise money for our Lifesaver Appeal and the BBC Children in Need appeal.

The CD featured a selection of Suffolk bands singing their own versions of classic Christmas songs as well as a few originals.

Mr Coulter donated his artwork to be used as the cover for Cool Yule and on Sunday it will be auctioned to raise even more money for the two funds.
