Iain McClune, Whisky Auctioneer Founder which is waiving its seller fee and donating its buyer commission to the charity. said: "We are excited by the prospect of working in partnership with the Scotch Whisky industry to not only provide support and a platform to raise money for such an important cause, but also to raise awareness of Beatson Cancer Charityís incredible work."

Martin Cawley, Beatson Cancer Charity CEO, said: "Without the wonderful generosity of our supporters, Beatson Cancer Charity could not continue to support the thousands of patients and families facing cancer every year. The money raised from this auction will allow us to invest in a better future for cancer patients and their families."

Karen Betts, Chief Executive of the Scotch Whisky Association, added: "The Scotch Whisky industry is very proud to be supporting the Beatson Cancer Charity auction and to help raise awareness about the incredible work they do in support of cancer patients across Scotland and their families.
