Celebrity Doodle auction

As part of Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, celebrities from the world of television, sport, film and radio along with illustrators and authors were asked to put pen to paper and doodle a marine creature!

Our 50th Anniversary Celebrity Doodle auction, launched on eBay at the end of November, was a huge success raising over £2000!

This exciting collection of marine-themed doodles included a fantastic and diverse range of original pieces of art work. For inspiration, we asked all those that contributed to think of the wonderful marine wildlife of our beautiful county. We received 31 doodles and these were auctioned just in time for Christmas!

Every doodle was different; from singing whales by Bill Oddie to incredible mermaids by Chris Riddell, Rebecca Cobb and Michael Foreman, from basking sharks by Nick Baker and local artist Kurt Jackson to dolphins and starfish by Richard E Grant and Sharron Davies.

For each doodle that was auctioned, 100% of the sale price came directly to the Trust. This helped to raise important funds enabling us to continue to protect our county’s wonderful wildlife and wild places.
