Big names 'paws' for thought

Tracey Emin, John Barrowman, Dame Vera Lynn and Ronnie Corbett are just some of the big names 'lending a paw' to raise money for the Cats Protection feline welfare charity.

They were each asked to draw around their hands, sign the page and illustrate it in their own way so that the drawings can be auctioned on eBay.

The bidding will commence on Wednesday 1 December with the hammer coming down on Saturday 11 December. Last year a similar event raised around £2,500 for the charity.

Other well-known contributors include Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon, film star Michael Sheen, Twilight star Kellan Lutz and Gavin and Stacey stars Joanna Page, Mathew Horne and Alison Steadman.
