Banksy’s screen print Very Little Helps – also known as Tesco Flag or Tesco Kids – is based on a mural of the same name that the artist painted on the side of a pharmacy on Essex Road in North London. The mural soon became the subject of public and media speculation and sadly was subsequently vandalised provoking further discussion on the distinctions between street art and graffiti. After it was partially damaged, with the Tesco flag painted over and replaced with a tag from rival artist King Robbo, the work was placed under perspex.

In 2008 Banksy created Very Little Helps as a series of 299 signed prints. It was released as a lottery at Pictures on Wall’s first and only open day on 6 & 7 December that year, which included a tour of the factor, live printing sessions, graffiti activities and a chance to win Very Little Helps for £350. The Very Little Helps lottery raised £24,406.61 – proceeds were donated to Sightsavers, the sight and disability rights charity.
