Robbie Williams is flogging some of his "prized possession" to raise much needed money for a children's hospice.

The ex-Take That singer is putting 150 personal artefacts, including awards, stage costumes and handwritten lyrics dating back to the early 1990s, up for auction at Bonhams.

Items include a set of handwritten lyrics for Let Me Entertain You, estimated to fetch £6,000, and the cream two-piece suit worn by Williams in the music video for Radio (Yours for a cool £7,000).

The auction, to raise money for The Donna Louise Children's Hospice, takes place in July.

Williams, who has also put his MTV video music award for Take That in the auction, said:

It's a privilege for me to be a patron of The Donna Louise Children's Hospice.

It makes a real difference to these children whose lives have been tragically limited.

The sale gives a great opportunity for bidders to know their money will go to such a fantastic charity, whilst also taking home some of my most prized possessions that have been personal markers of my career and life so far.
