Red Squirrel Charity
Auction Has Ended
The bidding has now ended, and Sean's sketch of an endangered
red squirrel has sold for a high bid of £365.
Among his fellow actors and entertainers, Sean's contribution ranked highly -- with
Michael Caine's sketch selling for £160, Kenneth Branagh's for £50, Jane Asher's for
£65 and Joanna Lumley's for £165.
A sketch by Paul McCartney sold for £4,120.
More than 200 stars agreed to take part in the "scribble a squirrel" competition
to raise awareness of the plight of the mammal, which could become extinct in England in
the next decade.
The pictures were auctioned on the Internet during Red Squirrel Week.
The auction ran for two weeks and will raise money for the North East Wildlife Trust and
The Calvert Trust, charities which both work to raise awareness of the dangers facing the
red squirrel in England.
The auction ended 29/09/2000 11:00 PM.
