SALE-born TV personality Karl Pilkington is one of many famous names to take part in National Doodle Day, taking place from March 7 to March 16.

The annual event, which began 11 years ago, will see Pilkington, a former Ashton-on-Mersey School pupil, and other celebrities have their doodles auctioned on eBay, and money raised will go to Epilepsy Action.

The public can also get in on the act by creating their own masterpieces and donating £1 to Epilepsy Action.

Philippa Cartwright, fundraising events manager at Epilepsy Action, said: “Every year we are overwhelmed with the positive support that we receive from celebrities and members of the public alike.

“The celebrity doodle auction is always a terrific success, raising thousands of pounds in much-needed funds for Epilepsy Action.”

There will be prizes for the best doodlers including arts and crafts vouchers and custom-made 3D doodles.
