London: Bond actor Daniel Craig`s blue swimming trunks, which he wore during a scene in ‘Casino Royale’, are being auctioned for charity.

The shorts are just one of 50 items of James Bond memorabilia to be sold in Christie`s charity sale to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first 007 movie ‘Dr No’, Daily Mail reported.

Other products include a one-third scale model of an Aston Martin DB5 used in the filming of "Skyfall", the next Bond movie set to hit the big screen in October.

The model is expected to fetch 30,000 pounds to 40,000 pounds, while another Aston Martin built in 2008 and used in the opening sequence of the last Bond movie ‘Quantum of Solace’ has a price tag of 100,000 pounds to 150,000 pounds.

The auction, which will raise funds for a range of charities including Unicef, is one of a series of events being held around the world to mark the anniversary.
