Emma Thomson and other entertainment, music and sports celebrities have decorated walking sticks for an online charity auction. The money raised will aid the Disabled Living Foundation (DLF), a British charity providing information on disability equipment. Commenting on her creation, Ms. Thompson said:

"'Doing the stick took me hours and I still have sticky hands.'
She added: 'Being disabled should not mean being disqualified from having access to every aspect of life.
The DLF provides solutions to these challenges and I am very honoured to be included.'"
