Children In Need auction

It's Children in Need time and once again they are holding an auction to help raise money for the cause. BBC Radio 2 listeners have already raised over £1.7 million pounds by having a 'things money can't buy' auction. Lots have included Raymond Blanc cooking in your home which raised £50,000 and a one-to-one lesson with guitar legend Mark Knopfler that went for £100,000.

If your budget doesn't quite stretch to such amounts there is also a separate Children In Need auction where items are more attainable. The auction includes signed Pudsey Bears, unique experiences, sporting goods, a ride in the original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car and for all Terry Wogan fans, a private number plate - THE 70G. In case you didn't know, TOGs are Sir Wogan's loyal fans - Terry's old geezers and gals.

Last year Children in Need raised just over £19 million on the night but donation continued after this and the 2007 appeal total was a record £37 million. It's great how so many people make this such a great event. Here's to another great year of fund-raising.

If you want to bid on the many items available please visit the Pudsey auction page.
