Robbie Williams is auctioning some of his "prized possessions" to raise cash for a children's hospice.

The former Take That singer is putting 150 items, including awards, stage costumes and handwritten lyrics dating from the early 1990s, under the hammer in the Bonhams sale.

Items include a set of handwritten lyrics for Let Me Entertain You, estimated to fetch £6,000 (€8,400), and the cream suit worn by Williams in the music video for Radio (€9,800).

The auction, to raise money for The Donna Louise Children's Hospice, is in July.

"It's a privilege to be a patron of The Donna Louise Children's Hospice," said Williams, who has also put his MTV video music award in the auction.

"It makes a real difference to these children whose lives have been tragically limited.

"The sale gives a great opportunity for bidders to know their money will go to such a fantastic charity, while also taking home some of my most prized possessions."
