On Air Now
Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am
50 lion sculptures have been auctioned off at the Bournemouth Pavilion as part of the Pride In Bournemouth project.
Many of the lions - which had been painted by local businesses, schools and artists - fetched over £1000.
The lion which became a memorial to Red Arrow pilot Jon Egging after his death, fetched around £4000. He was killed when his plane came down in fields after performing at the Bournemouth Air Festival back in August. Hundreds of flowers and tributes were left beside the sculpture outside the town hall, because it had a picture of The Red Arrows painted on it.
TV star Martin Clunes is patron of both the charities and was there along with actress and Born Free Founder, Virginia McKenna.
