Martin Clunes: Celebrities Doodle For Epilepsy Action

March 21, 2014

Celebrities who put pen to paper to raise much-needed cash for charity have raised over £9,000 for national charity Epilepsy Action.

A host of famous faces had their scribbles auctioned on eBay over ten days, with Martin Clunes' doodle going for the highest price at £500.

The celebrities donated their doodles as part of the National Doodle Day fundraising campaign, which kicked off on Friday 7 March. Clunes’ drawing, of an elephant from the rear, ranked highest of the top ten doodles, including those of Eddie Redmayne, Karl Pilkington, former Dr Who Colin Baker, pianist Stephen Hough, Emma Freud, Terry Gilliam, illustrator Axel Scheffler and artist Mark Kaiser.

National Doodle Day, supported by Dodo Pad, publishers of the original family ‘doodle’ diary, aims to get as many people doodling as possible. The event raises money to help support the 600,000 people across the UK with epilepsy.
