A town named Halesmere, in South Downs National Park, are currently hosting 100 Halesmere Hares, of both ears up and moongazer variety.

The hares, which are not made by GoGoCreate, are charity champions for a number of local causes.

The southern hares are equally as punny as our own, with names ranging from 'Mariah Harey' to 'Damien Harest'.

Their hares are also sponsored by local businesses and displayed in local shops.

Some are even up for auction, like our own, and range in price up to around £400.

Our own hares will go to auction on October 11 at Open in Norwich. Tickets for the event are already on sale.
