Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Booked Up 2011

I've done music and running related fundraising before and now its the turn of another great love of mine - books! The idea is to raise funds for two charities - Beating Bowel Cancer and Kidney Research UK - by auctioning off various signed or unique items donated by authors via EBay.

As charities are seeing declining donations due to the current economic climate I thought one way to get in vital funds is by charity Ebay auctions as people get an item they want whilst helping the nominated charity, who get funds they may not have otherwise have got.

Please note - 100% of the selling price goes to the nominated charity less Ebay’s final selling fees

Charity EBay auctions

Total raised so far via EBay auctions…£1,440.53

 

Beating Bowel Cancer  = £1,391.76

 

Kidney Research UK = £48.77
