Enfield-born actress Julia McKenzie is among a host of famous faces who have put pen to paper to take part in this year’s National Doodle Day.

Her doodle will be auctioned on eBay from Friday March 7 to raise money for national charity, Epilepsy Action.

Julia, who plays Miss Marple in Agatha Christie's Marple, has been joined by household names including Sir Michael Parkinson, Joanna Lumley, Bill Nighy, Jackie Collins and John Bishop in doodling for the annual event.

Philippa Cartwright, fundraising events manager at Epilepsy Action, said: “Every year we are overwhelmed with the positive support that we receive from celebrities and members of the public alike.

“The celebrity doodle auction is always a terrific success, raising thousands of pounds in much-needed funds for Epilepsy Action.

“The highest-grossing doodle ever raised £1,600 alone, so this event really does make a huge difference to people with epilepsy and their families.”
