Nick Park, the Wallace and Gromit creator, isn’t just a dab hand with the animation clay, as he’s just shown off his ultra-generous side by selling the van which inspired the car in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit on eBay, for charity.
He’s supporting the Wallace & Gromit Children’s Foundation which helps children’s hospitals and hospices within Britain, and with 25 bids so far, and eight days to go, it’s already raised £6,000 for the charity.
For those who’ve seen the Oscar-winning film, you might remember the pest control Anti-Pesto van used by Wallace and Gromit, which took inspiration from Park’s 1958 green Austin A35 van supposedly. It doesn’t have an MOT and has been sitting in a garage for a few years, but I’m sure it’s a restorer’s dream. A Wallace & Gromit-mad restorer’s dream.
