Hello, lovely charitable people. Your competition challenge for this week to ‘win’ the ‘prize’ of a signed copy of Darwin in Scotland, (you will be buying the one in the auction), is to raise as much as money as possible for CHILDREN IN NEED via this auction.

You have until 23rd. Nov, 2010 01:30:43 (GMT). Go!



The auction has now closed and was surprisingly well attended with 831 page views over its 3 days, but that led to only 12 bids being placed by 7 separate bidders. Only a small proportion, however, as you will see, the overall result is pleasing.
Therefore, thank you to all the Children in Need bidders. You are awesome. And congrats to the winner and runner-up who both receive copies of Darwin in Scotland.
Total raised for Children in Need: £51-00.
(see screen grabs below if you are cynical)
Those of you who did bid but didn’t win, or would have liked to but for some reason didn’t, please feel free to donate your PayPal bids to Children in Need anyway.
