A NEW set of deckchairs for a unique fundraising art exhibition were unveiled last night by a well-known actor.

Lord of the Rings actor Bernard Hill, who lives in Suffolk, unveiled the latest deckchairs for the Suffolk Coastal Deckchairs project.

It sees the collection of chairs touring venues across East Suffolk this spring and summer. They will then be auctioned to raise money for St Elizabeth Hospice on October 1.

Holby City actor Robert Powell and Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller are the latest high-profile names to contribute to the exhibition.

They have designed colourful deckchairs which will be added to an existing exhibition comprising of more than 40 creations by well-known actors, writers and artists including Anthony Horowitz, cartoonist Annie Tempest, actor Sean Bean and Mr Benn creator David McKee.
