Egg Letter Box helps raise over £1 Million

Big Egg Hunt

Thanks to the superb efforts of the London Police, the BBC, ITV and the social media platforms who built such a widespread campaign appealing for his safe return, Egg Letter Box was found just yards away from his plinth and was able to re join the exhibition - behind a secure display case!

Egg Letter Box was auctioned by Sotheby's, selling for a cracking £42,000. As one of the highest selling eggs alongside Prince Charles' signed egg and Zaha Hadid's egg, the Big Egg Hunt has raised over £1 million for Elephant Family and Action for Children.


Egg Letter Box - Stolen

Posted 26/02/12

After just 4 days into the Big Egg Hunt exhibition, Egg Letter Box was enjoying the attention, working hard promoting the event and tirelessly posing for photographs. Sadly, on Friday night, Egg Letter Box was stolen. A police investigation is currently underway and following the incredible media support, I, along with Elephant Family and Action for Children appeal for the safe return of the Egg Letter Box so it can rejoin the exhibition and help raise vital funds at the charity auction. The egg can be returned to 104-108 Curtain Road, London or call 020 3124 0661. Thank you to the many Big Egg Hunters who have contacted me and left comments on the Big Egg Hunt site, I am equally dismayed that someone would do this.
