BT Art Phone Boxes auctioned for ChildLine's 25th Anniversary

Entertainment London, United Kingdom - 17 July 2012

ChildLine, a UK-based charity designed to provide comfort and protection to children and young adults, will celebrate its 25th anniversary through a series of fundraisers from October 8 to October 12, 2012. 

BT, a British Telecommunications Agency, plans to raise money for the charity by transforming its phone boxes into works of art and selling them on e-Bay. The phone boxes have thus been dubbed BT ArtBoxes. 

The BT ArtBoxes are currently being displayed in Central London, near Trafalgar Square and Picadilly. E-Bay will auction the boses until July 22.

According to an article on readingchronicle.co.uk, ChildLine is also hoping to set a  world record for the largest number of birthday cards received, by encouraging children in elementary and middle schools throughout the UK to send their birthday wishes. 

The photos above were taken on July 15, 2012.
