Dorset Wildlife auction

Despite the, ahem, dubious artistic merits of Ian Gillan’s drawing auctioned on eBay for the Dorset Wildlife Trust, it fetched a whopping £225. To put things in perspective, the Trust auctions in the past weeks offered a number of drawings by different celebrities from world class to “where are they now” to obscure. For most of them winning bids were in £5 to £50 range. Notable exceptions include Robin Cousins, 1980 figure skating Olympic champion, who’s drawing brought in a record £2,550, Gillan with £225, and Kim Wilde with £205.

Kudos to Big Ian and his fans. It’s all for a good cause. And our congratulations to Jutta Biene, the proud owner of a unique objet d’art.
