A couple of weeks ago, we ran a series of Save Van Dyck text-donate competitions – but we've saved the best for last. If you text-donate to the campaign between today and Friday 11 April (inclusive), you'll be entered into a prize draw for a luxury holiday to Antwerp, courtesy of Haslemere Travel and Kirker Holidays. Antwerp is the birthplace of Anthony Van Dyck and was home to several other Flemish old masters, including Brueghel, Jordaens and Rubens.

This wonderful prize includes bed and breakfast accommodation for two people (sharing a twin/double room), travel by Eurostar via Brussels, a morning walking tour with a local guide, and Kirker Guide Notes to restaurants and sightseeing. Plus, the Kirker Concierge will be available to reserve dinner or museum tickets. The winner will stay at the charming Hotel T’Sandt, a boutique hotel housed in a 17th-century mansion, ideally located in the historic centre, close to the cathedral.

For the chance to win, just text VANDYCK to 70800 and give £5 to our campaign. You can also enter via the form below. (Donation optional, but gladly received.) The deadline is midnight on Friday 11 April. Download the competition terms and conditions.

We're fundraising to save Van Dyck's final self-portrait for the nation. The painting has hung in private collections for nearly 400 years; help us to bring it to the National Portrait Gallery, so that it can be enjoyed by the public for hundreds of years more. Visit our campaign microsite.
