Secret World to auction life-size Batman replica
PUBLISHED: 18:00 06 November 2017
An East Huntspill animal rescue charity will auction a life-size replica of Batman to raise money for its work.
Secret World Wildlife Rescue, in New Road, will sell the 6ft 2in figure after it was donated by LOUD – a clothing shop in Leicester.
The model, based on the character in the popular Batman: Arkham Knight video game, was given to the charity after it came to the rescue of a rare bat species.
Samantha Hannay, head of external relations at Secret World, said: “Secret World rescues, rehabilitates and releases approximately 60 bats each year.
“Recently, it rescued a grey long-eared bat which is one of the UK’s rarest species with an estimated population of only 1,000 to 3,000.
“The money we raise from this auction will help us provide vital funds for our bat rehabilitation work.”
The auction will be held on eBay from November 19-26.
