Kate Moss, Sadie Frost, Jaime Winstone, Henry Holland and others provide graphic tributes to the London Landmark for charity auction.
Wednesday 23 June 2010
Kate Moss, Sadie Frost and Henry Holland have put pen to paper to pay tribute to the London Eye on its tenth birthday.
The trio were among 10 big names chosen to produce an artistic view of the London landmark, prints of which will be sold to raise money for the Evelina Children’s Hospital, which is part of the Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation.
David Sharpe, divisional director of London Midway attractions, Merlin Entertainments which owns the London Eye said the illustrations were “the perfect way” to mark its birthday, adding: “And what’s even better is that we can raise money for one of the capital’s most treasured facilities too.”
Prints of the work, also by actresses Samantha Morton, Amanda Mealing and Jaime Winstone, actors Tom Chambers and Dominic West, and television presenters Fiona Phillips and Ben Shephard, will go on sale at the Eye’s onsite shops for £5 each.
