Wool I Never - PM Draws Sheep for Eden
10:02am 4th December 2012
A doodle of a sheep by David Cameron is being auctioned by Eden to raise money for charity.
The basic black and white drawing is one of a series of lots, including a copy of the lyrics of Evita signed by composer Tim Rice.
The online auction, which takes place from December 6 to 16, is based on the theme of inspiration.
Other quirky collectables up for auction include a piece by eminent artist Kurt Jackson, a visionary sketch of the future by Joanna Lumley, James Wong’s childhood gardening book and artwork by singer-songwriter Seth Lakeman.
There are also special experiences on offer, such as wine tasting for six people at the historic London wine merchants Berry Bros, a spa day at Cornwall’s Fowey Hall Hotel and a private chocolate and chilli tour for two at Eden.
In addition, the auction has a collection of unique gifts to choose from, including kegs of Sharp’s Doom Bar Bitter, a luxury gift set from Neal’s Yard Remedies and an exclusive Ultimate Chocolate Feast hamper from Eden.
Sir Tim Smit from the Eden Project, said: “Inspiring people to believe they can make a difference and giving them the tools to do so, is the key to all our futures. This is a principle that informs all our projects both here and across the country, which is why we’ve encouraged friends of Eden to share something that inspires them.”
The auction will raise money for a range of Eden projects, from working with the school, college and university students that visit each year, to engaging with socially excluded young people and helping community gardening groups to flourish.
