Michael King from Epilepsy Action says: "Each year we're amazed at the huge amount of support given to National Doodle Day by celebrities and amazing artists across the country. This year we have a record-breaking number of talented contributors who have donated incredible pieces of art to the auction. Whatever your interests, there really is something for everyone in this year's auction and I'd encourage anyone who would like to own an original piece of art to browse the collection.

"Bidding on a doodle will not only be the first step to building your very own bespoke art collection, but it will also help to raise vital funds to support people affected by epilepsy. Epilepsy affects people from all walks of life and a diagnosis can happen at any age. Money raised from National Doodle Day will help us to continue to be there for these people when they need us most, so do check out the auction and happy bidding!"
