Sean Bean Scribbles a Squirrel - Picking up the artist's palette


Sean Bean... loving the squirrel.
I got this email from Nona at The Compleat Sean Bean about Sean Bean's (Boromir) artistic skills being put to use to save this cute little mammal. So, does anyone know why the squirrel is going extinct in the first place?

Hi guys,

Celebrities including Sir Paul McCartney, the Duchess of York, Sir Michael Caine and Sean Bean have been showing off their artistic flair in aid of the endangered red squirrel in the UK.

More than 200 stars agreed to take part in a "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 are being auctioned on the Internet during Red Squirrel Week.

The auction will run 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 ends 29/09/2000 11:00 PM.

The QXL auction website is here, along with a list of all the celebrity contributors:
