A TARDIS is being auctioned off to raise money for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance Appeal.

The ten foot tall TARDIS featured on a Doctor Who themed float at Devizes and Pewsey carnivals for Market Lavington firm Elm Tree Fencing & Landscaping.

Elm Tree owners Lisa and Elliott Perrigo would like to sell the TARDIS to the highest bidder with the money going to the Wiltshire Air Ambulance Appeal.

Mrs Perrigo said: “It would be a good Christmas present. We’ve had suggestions that it could be used as an allotment shed, portable loo or a children’s playhouse.

“Our float came second in Pewsey Carnival and we will put the £50 we won for that to the Wiltshire Air Ambulance Appeal. We would like to raise as much as we can for the appeal so we have set a minimum price of £80 for the Tardis.”

The TARDIS was made from plywood by one of Mr Perrigo’s employees.

It can be viewed and Mr Perrigo said he would deliver it to the successful bidder.

Sealed bids (no cheques) should be sent to Elm Tree Fencing & Landscaping, Broadway, Market Lavington, Devizes, SN10 5RH. The deadline is December 12.

* TARDIS stands for Time And Relative Dimension(s) In Space and is a time machine and spacecraft in Doctor Who.

In the show it is a product of Time Lord technology, a properly maintained and piloted TARDIS can transport its occupants to any point in time and space.

The interior of a TARDIS is much larger than its exterior, which can blend in with its surroundings through the ship's chameleon circuit.

In the series, the Doctor pilots an unreliable, stolen, obsolete Type 40 TARDIS, once referred to as a TT Capsule, whose chameleon circuit is faulty, leaving it locked in the shape of a 1950s London police box (used to house phones so that beat policemen could contact their station) after a visit to London in 1963.
