Superdragons auction
The Sixty decorated SuperDragons that were placed around Newport, South Wales, have been sold off at a charity auction, raising close to £100,000.

In July we told you about the Superdragons and the involvement of PCO cartoonists Tim Harries and Gerard Whyman.

Tim created a dragon called “Scrum”, covered in rugby players, above left, and Ger painted “Shipley”, based on the city’s maritime history, and “Rodney”, above right, which was sponsored by Newport Gwent Dragons rugby team.

Ger told the Bloghorn that all the dragons sold, raising a healthy £92,250: “My rugby one went for £1,900 and the ship design went for £1,300. Tim’s Scrum sold for £1,500.”

The biggest sellers were the Wooden Dragon, which went for £8,000, and Flagon Dragon, a Ryder Cup-themed one with Colin Montgomerie’s signature, which raised £6,100.
