THE AUTOGRAPHS of rock legends, sporting heroes and pop stars are all up for grabs in aid of veterinary charity PDSA. Amongst the celeb signatures on offer are those of Sir Elton John or everyone’s favourite Mr Nasty, Simon Cowell, or Greased Lightnin’ babe Holly Willoughby.
The online auction is organised by top internet auction site eBay and coincides with the start of eBay’s animal campaign, encouraging people to either sell items they no longer need and donate a percentage of the sale to their chosen animal charity, or bid on items being sold. Funds raised for PDSA will help the charity provide free veterinary treatment for sick and injured pets.
PDSA so relies on the generosity of the public to funds its PetAid services, which cost more than £41 million every year - and is counting on your bids to help keep tails wagging across the UK!
PDSA spokesperson, Liza Randall, says: “If you’re a massive Lulu fan, love talk show host Trisha, or are a fan of pop star Jenny Frost, then this auction is for you! There are lots of different items up for sale for pets in need of vets, so log on and get bidding!
“All funds raised from sales will help PDSA treat the 4,650 pets it sees every working day.”
As well as bidding on celebrity items, pet owners are urged to sell the things they no longer want and donate their earnings to the PDSA.
Buyers and sellers are urged to be as generous as they like and give between ten per cent and 100% of their item’s final selling price to PDSA.
Liza adds: ‘The added benefit of selling for a charity is that you will enjoy even more bids and selling success, as eBay buyers want to support charities - especially those that help our furry four-legged friends!’
