A cancer charity in Sheffield says they are 'overwhelmed' after film and television star, Sean Bean, donated his personalised Land Rover for an auction.

Sheffield United, who Bean is a massive fan of, asked the Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones star to provide an item for a gala dinner the Blades are organising to raise funds for the Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

They say they were 'stunned' when he donated his 1973 green Land Rover, which has been ‘personalised’ with his signatures and self-penned Blades motifs, for auction at the event at the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire’s Chatsworth House stately home on Sunday.

When we made the request to Sean we anticipated getting some signed memorabilia, never did we imagine that Sean would provide his very own Land Rover.
