Hospice Isle of Man says it’s ‘over the moon’ after the famous Island wallabies raised more than £250,000 last night.

The colourful sculptures – which were part of the hugely successful ‘Wallabies Gone Wild’ trail this summer – went under the hammer in the auction at the Villa Marina on Thursday night.

The trail saw the creations scattered at different points across the Isle of Man encouraging people to spend time with each other and enjoy the Manx outdoors.

All the proceeds raised during the bidding is going towards the work of the Hospice.
