Bagpuss scarecrow finds forever home at Osborne School in Winchester | Hampshire Chronicle

A GIANT children’s TV character scarecrow which was put up for auction to raise money for an animal shelter has found its forever home.

A 1.7m tall Bagpuss, as made by Paul and Emma Simmons for the Owslebury Scarecrow Trail, has been delivered to Osborne School, a special education school in Winchester.

Mr and Mrs Simmons invited people to bid on their striped straw creation on Facebook, with the money being donated to St Francis Animal Welfare.

The winning bid of £200 was submitted by a fellow Owslebury resident, Emily Loretto, who donated the scarecrow to her son’s school.

A huge thank you to Emily Loretto who donated her Bagpuss auction win to the school and also to Paul and Emma Simmons who made and delivered Bagpuss – who is so big he had to travel in a horse box! Watch this space too as thanks to Paul and Emma Bagpuss may have some other friends arriving just in time for the Forest Trail at the summer fete!
