Although the Lincolnshire Barons have disappeared from the city streets of Lincoln, they have now raised an outstanding amount of £167,000 for the Trussell Trust, after being auctioned off. All 25 sculptures were sold at a special evening event held at Brayford Waterfront in Lincoln on October 1st.

The characterful Barons have been lining the streets of Lincoln this summer as part of the Magna Carta 800th anniversary celebrations.
