CREWE Olympian, Beth Tweddle, is one of several famous faces to put pen to paper in this year’s National Doodle Day.

The world champion gymnast and Dancing on Ice star, who grew up in Bunbury, is joined by the likes of Joanna Lumley, Bill Nighy and John Bishop for the annual event.

Dozens of celebrity scribbles will be auctioned on eBay from Friday, March 7, to raise money for Epilepsy Action.

Philippa Cartwright, fundraising events manager at the charity, 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.”

More than 1,200 celebrities, including Mary Berry, Rita Ora and Sophie Dahl, have taken part in National Doodle Day since it began eleven years ago.

Members of the public can also get in on the act by creating their own masterpiece and donating a pound to Epilepsy Action.

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

The auction will run from Friday to Sunday March 16.

Closing date for entries into the National Doodle Day competition is Friday, April 4.
