Calling all die-hard ‘Hobbit’ fans! We’ve got something special to sell, whilst supporting CanTeen.

Talia Pearson, an airbrush artist from Sign Captivation and Airbrush Venturi in Christchurch, painted a car bonnet of The Hobbit with Sir Ian McKellen (Gandalf) and Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins) on it, which she gifted to the CanTeen Canterbury/West Coast branch.

Sir Ian, whilst on his tour around New Zealand, personally autographed the bonnet when he was in Christchurch.

With the world premiere of The Hobbit happening in late November, now’s the perfect time to auction it off.

This is a one of a kind collectible for any Hobbit fan.

Go on – put in a bid today and you’ll be making a difference to young people living with cancer. All money raised from this auction will be donated to the CanTeen Canterbury/West Coast branch.

What you need to know:
Dimensions of the bonnet are: 140cm (w) x 105cm (h).
Type of car: Toyota (model unknown).

This item can either be collected from the CanTeen office in Christchurch or if you’d like the item shipped to you by freight, please note that this will need to be arranged and paid for by the buyer.

If you have any questions about this auction, please ask us.
