Get bidding!

As promised, details of some of the items we’ve got for the charity auction on Friday night, so you can take a look and decide if you’re interested.

First, a t-shirt signed by the cast of Channel 4’s Shameless, including David Threlfall (Frank), Maxine Peake (Veronica) and Dean Lennox Kelly (Kev). Thanks to Marjorie Yates for getting it for us – she plays Carol on the show, but perhaps more importantly, worked with my mum at Cadbury’s in the 60s.

Next up, a Winnie The Pooh quilt, made by Judi Strain, a friend of the family. It measures 90cm by 140cm, features all the characters and a large number of embroidery stitches.

And also, a Birmingham City football signed by several members of the current Blues squad. Thanks to Karren Brady for arranging it.

There’s other stuff to come that I haven’t got photos of yet including a signed West Bromwich Albion shirt, tickets to see Wolverhampton Wanderers as well as some signed Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Toro Rosso caps that have been signed by David Coulthard, Scott Speed, Vitantonio Liuzzi and Neel Jani.

If you’re interested in any of these and want to make a bid but can’t make it on Friday then email me and let me know how much you’re willing to bid – what your starting bid would be as well as how high you’ll go, and we’ll bid for you on Friday!
