Bond's tuxedo auctioned for charity

03 December, 2006

With Daniel Craig being hailed as a hero after stepping into the secret-agent's shoes for Casino Royale, everything the actor touches and wears, is seemingly turning into gold.

And now, the tuxedo worn by the actor in his James Bond film 'Casino Royale' is going to be auctioned off for charity.

Over 40 prizes are going under the hammer, including a walk on part in US hit serial 'Desperate Housewives', the gold Big Brother diary room chair, and a visit to the Hawaii set where television series 'Lost' is filmed. All proceeds will go towards helping ChildLine reach their 20th birthday goal of 20 million pounds.

"Your bid will enable ChildLine to increase the number of children it helps," the BBC quoted ChildLine's Esther Rantzen as saying.

ChildLine is a free, confidential helpline that operates 24 hours a day for children and young people with problems.

Volunteer counsellors are trained to comfort and advise anyone who phones in.

Around 4,500 children call for help each day, but 2,000 are unable to get through due to shortage of volunteers.

Bidding starts on 1 December, with the live auction to take place at the ChildLine Ball on 9 December.
