A rare print of the Beatles that has been on display at a Wokingham art gallery has fetched £2,500 for charity at an auction.
The picture, which is called Power Flower II and was taken by photographer Tom Murray, was bought at the auction at Wentworth Golf Course on Friday.
The money raised through the auctioning of the photograph will be donated to the Alexander Devine Children's Cancer Trust, which aims to support youngsters and their families affected by cancer.
The photograph had been on display at the TG Art Gallery in Peach Street, whose owner Jan Nixon chose the charity that will benefit from the sale.
The gallery was one of many across the country that were given a selection of Beatles photographs by Mr Murray.
Mr Murray had decided to release the pictures to mark the 40th anniversary of the snaps being taken.
All the snaps - 180 in total - were taken during a photo shoot called the Mad Day Out in 1968 and show the Fab four, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and John Lennon pictured in various parts of London.
