We paid £250 in the children in need charity auction hosted by Charles Hanson for a boot glass and then put the same item back into the same auction, next lot. This will be televised soon. We will also donate double the entire proceeds of sale of this example to the same charity. Times are hard, but much harder than needs be for some.
