Produced by the critically acclaimed Dick George Creatives, leading film, tv and live events propmakers, the shark is for sale on Ebay.

All proceeds from the sale will be donated to The Dukes which is a registered charity.

By the end of the extended run of Treasure Island, the 4m long puppet will have appeared in more than 40 live performances exciting children and their parents.

The shark features aluminium lightweight poles for manual operation of the body and a movable jaw which can be operated from the head rod of the body. The puppet is a whole piece and does not come apart.

The shark would be available from August 20 when the successful owner would be required to collect it from The Dukes in Moor Lane.
