All proceeds are go towards the upkeep of the memorial at Hazlehead Park.

The prints, from local artist Elizabeth McAlpine feature the Memorial Monument crated by sculptor Sue Jane Taylor, tohether with sketches and a detailed description of the sculpture.

Pound for Piper has maintained the gardens since 2013.

Matt Abraham, Oil & Gas UK’s health and safety director, said: “Funds raised from the sale of the prints will help pay for the ongoing maintenance of the Piper Alpha Memorial Rose Garden.

“Oil & Gas UK is happy to support the Trust’s efforts to ensure it remains a place of reflection and remembrance for those who survived that night and for the families and friends of those who lost their lives.”

Those wishing to support the upkeep of the Memorial gardens by purchasing a professionally framed print at a cost of £267 are advised to contact Steve Rae, Chairman of the Trust, at Steverae1962@hotmail.com to obtain a print number which they can reference when making a payment.
