The proceeds will go to support tiger conservation projects protecting precious tiger populations in India, Russia and Thailand.

“In these areas a little goes a long way for example £50 helps us run education workshops for 300 children in Assam, helping them to understand the importance of tigers to the biodiversity of their region and £12 can buy a first aid field kit for Thai wildlife rangers. So the total raised by the annual auction is going to make a big difference,” says TigerTime manager, Vicky Flynn.

Rock legend, Status Quo’s Francis Rossi received the most number of bids while Ab Fab star Joanna Lumley, singer Melanie Chisolm and dancer Oti Mabuse proved hugely popular. The highest bids were received for artists Richard Symonds and Emily Lamb and fashion designer, Elizabeth Emanuel who celebrated her birthday yesterday (July 5).

“It’s such a simple and effective fundraiser and we’re hoping to make it even bigger and better next year so if any celebrities would like to donate their tiger art for a fabulous cause we’d love to hear from you,” adds Vicky.
