Robin Williams gave his favourite bike to charity before suicide

London: Robin Williams had donated his beloved Pegoretti bicycle to a charity auction only weeks before he committed suicide.

The 63-year-old actor gave the handmade bike to Drever Family Foundation, a private charitable organization, which aims to improve life for young people by supporting education and the Arts, as he dearly supported the cause, the Mirror reported.

The bike managed to raise a little above 12,000 pounds at the gala’s live auction during the foundation’s annual Hotbed benefit, which the ‘Mrs Doubtfire’ star had reportedly planned to attend.

Williams had taken his own life at his home in San Francisco on August 11, after suffering from depression, addiction and financial issues.
