Has anyone been watching Adam Hills 'The Last leg' Paralympic comedy chat on C4 after the Paralympics?
Last night someone that made a knitted Adam Hill figure and listed it for £15 with any proceeds made going to Great Ormond St Hospital. They mentioned it in passing as a humorous item and who would want to pay 15 quid for a hand knitted effigy. After the add break it had jumped up to £50, by the end of the show it had reached £9000 (yes 9 grand).
I don't think so, when it's happened before, Ebay have contacted the bidders and reduced it to confirmed bids by contacting the bidders within a few hours. This one has been around that figure all day, which is why I waited until now to mention it.
There's been a steady increase since it got it's initial publicity on Monday night as at least 2 serious bidders are letting it be known that they're still in it. I can't help but think that those that will bid to this value for charity will have a nice round figure of 40, 50 or even £100k in their mind.
