The Island’s famous wallabies have raised more than £250,000 for Hospice Isle of Man.

The colourful sculptures went on auction at the Villa Marina this evening. 

The Wallabies were  created by national and local artists and organisations and were hugely popular this summer as part of the  ‘Wallabies Gone Wild’ trail – which encouraged people to spend time together and enjoy the the Manx outdoors.

The total amount raised was £250,700 with all proceeds going towards the Hospice.
