Doodles drawn by Yorkshire celebrities have fetched hundreds of pounds for Epilepsy Action.

And a creation by Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson, from Keighley, raised the most.

His scribbling coined-in over £169 when it was auctioned with other doodles on eBay in aid of the charity. In total, £667 was raised.

Ricky took part in the venture in support of annual National Doodle Day.

Members of the public were invited to join in by creating their own masterpieces, and donating £1 to Epilepsy Action.

Philippa Cartwright, fundraising events manager at the charity, said: “We are overwhelmed by the support received from celebrities and members of the public. The money raised is vital in helping us improve the quality of life for people with epilepsy.”

The public competition is open until next Friday, April 4. Visit national doodleday.org.uk for further information.
