The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s TigerTime campaign has launched its 2014 Stars & Stripes celebrity art auction to raise awareness and funds for tiger conservation in India, Thailand and Russia.
Sporting stars taking part include World Superbike Champion Tom Sykes, ex-England cricketer David Gower, Jody Craddock and Sir Stirling Moss, while actors Peter Egan, Ayden Callaghan and Sarah Jane Honeywell will exhibit their work alongside legend of rock Frances Rossi and everyone’s favourite comedian, Ronnie Corbett. There’s also work from wildlife artist David Shepherd, designers Elizabeth Emanuel, Emre Erturk and Naomi Cleaver, garden expert Alan Titchmarsh, best-selling novelist Jane Fallon and glamour girl favourite Lucy Pinder.
“They may seem like a very diverse group but they share one passion and that’s to see the tiger remain wild and free,” says TigerTime campaign manager, Vicky Flynn. “By giving their precious time to support this event each and every one is helping us fund vital conservation projects to help save the tiger. And, with numbers in the wild dwindling to fewer than 3,200 this push to raise awareness and funds is as vital as ever.”
