The seller of a rare signed poem penned by Sir Sean Connery has increased the sale price by Â£5,500 to donate to a charity of which the James Bond star is a trustee, reports The Scotsman
As previously reported in the Evening News, the verse was written by the Hollywood legend in 1955 before he hit the big time while he was a young actor in a touring production of South Pacific.
It is being sold on an online auction site for Â£6,500 â after originally going on sale for just under Â£1,000 â to allow for a donation of Â£4,225 to the Scottish International Education Trust.
The poem is said to have been penned by Sir Sean seven years before he landed the 007 role in dedication to a Leeds guesthouse landlady named Mrs Hawksbridge who had looked after him.
