Stars Design Candle Holders For Parkinson's Charity
Ricky Gervais, Robbie Coltrane, and singer Elaine Page are among a host of British stars who have designed their own candle holder for charity.
Model Sophie Dahl, funnyman Stephen Fry, veteran actor Bernard Cribbins, and former Doctor Who Peter Davison have also signed up to the fundraising drive by The Cure Parkinson's Trust. They have each etched their own design for unique, one-off candle holders made of bone china, which will be auctioned off in aid of the charity via the eBay website.
The 10-day sale, which begins on Tuesday (22Feb11), also includes signed photos from other stars including Sir Michael Caine, opera singer Katherine Jenkins, former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, and Little Britain creators Matt Lucas and David Walliams. And Gervais is urging fans to support the charity's efforts to raise awareness of Parkinson's disease, writing on his blog: "Please bid for my little doodle in an auction for Parkinsons." (ZN/AWS/MT)
