FILM fans are urged to get bidding for a chance of owning a piece of Sheffield movie memorabilia and helping a Yorkshire theatre company.

The Full Monty star Steve Huison is selling his original script from the movie.

The 48-year-old, who played security guard Lomper in the smash-hit 1997 film, is auctioning off the signed script on eBay to raise money for the West Yorkshire-based Shoestring Forum Theatre Company, which he helps to run.

In the online listing, Steve said: “This is an extremely rare copy of The Full Monty shooting script.

“It was my own copy I used while making the film.

“It contains all the scenes in their entirety, including scenes that didn’t make the final edit. This is not a photocopy of the original.

“It is a bit dog-eared, due to the fact I used it every day for nine weeks on set and it has sat on my shelf since then.”

Money raised from the sale will go towards the theatre company’s hospital to home project, a mental health drama provision in Bradford.

Steve said: “This sale is in an attempt to keep the project surviving.”

And the sale has been backed by Steve’s Full Monty co-star William Snape.

The 26-year-old actor from Sheffield, who played schoolboy Nathan in the movie, said: “Steve’s theatre company do some fantastic work and if it can help others then I think it is a great idea.”

And he admitted he was considering selling his own script for charity as well.

“I do still have my script and am considering auctioning it to help continue the building of a secondary school in Kenya.”

Bidding on the script had reached £250 last night. The auction ends on Friday.
