Remember the pink squirrel? (see the entry for September 15 below)
Sir Paul's enchanting drawing proved to be the auction's top seller, fetching £4,000 for the The Calvert Trust and Northumbria Wildlife Trust charity auction (far surpassing the bids for Prince Charles' watercolor resulting in HRH withdrawing his art work due to lack of interest on the part of the bidders.) Northumbria Wildlife Trust was raising money to protect endangered Red Squirrels in the region while The Calvert Trust (which uses a squirrel as its logo) will use the funds raised in the auction to organise holidays for the disabled.
