This sketch of a tree by Harrow-born actor Dev Patel is being used to promote a charity doodling event.

Budding artists are invited to draw a doodle and donate a pound to charity as part of National Doodle Day this Friday.

The event aims to get as many people doodling as possible to help support the 60,000 people with epilepsy across London.

All the money goes to the charity Epilepsy Action and the best doodles can to win £150 worth of arts and crafts vouchers.

Harrow-born Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel’s doodle will also be auctioned on eBay to raise money for this good cause.

Individual entries should be drawn on an A5 piece of card and include name, age, telephone number and address on the back. 

Closing date for entries is Friday 8 March.
