Sucker For Punishment… MORE XMAS CARDS!!

LOADS of Xmas Cards were posted out today to lucky winners of my auctions, but hey… there’s still a chance to snap up an awesome xmas present for someone special or just for you!

prospectlogoItems can still be sent around the UK via Special Delivery with my last day for posting being Monday. As such all unsold items, and a few more added, are up for grabs until Sunday night.  As always, the cards are proving popular, and I am hoping to add a wee bit more into the kitty for Prospect Hospice.

This is really it… there will be no more Xmas Cards up for grabs in 2014.  Don’t miss out.

24 More Hours of Xmas Cards…

It’s not too late…

DSCN56712014 has been rather awesome for Scotland, and even more so for Glasgow.  It came to an end last night with the Sports Personality of the Year Awards, and though the nominees stayed in hiding, I clocked some pretty good signed items, including an Xmas card from Jonny DSCN5648Wilkinson.   I managed loads of Olympic and Commonwealth stars, loads of whom remembered me (smiley face there)  A new face wasDSCN5655 three time 2014 DSCN5646medal winning gymnast Dan Keatings!   I also spotted Ryder Cup winning golfer Stephen Gallagher and long distance adventure cyclist Mark Beaumont!

Pretty much everyone I met signed an Xmas Card for me to auction (click here to see what is up for grabs for charity right now) but having sourced a Glasgow 2014 programme during the night I managed to get it signed by loads later on, before RossDSCN5681 Murdoch posed holding it.  It’s got some amazing names on it, including several medal winners from Glasgow … if you fancy it, give me a shout :)

Oh and as a bonus, I snagged a card from Dr Who and Torchwood star John Barrowman, who also posed for a DSCN5668pic with me.

There were loads more of course, but I’ll keep this short, as I have cards to add to here… LIVE AUCTIONS… BID HERE!!!!

London 2014 :D

Getting back on the wagon as it were, I headed to London earlier this week for what now seems to be my annual pilgrimage to my old home city in December. If I am honest, I wasn’t sure about the trip this year, it’s not been the best time for me over the last month or so, but I had paid, so thought it would do me good to be there!

So, three days down south, featuring TV studios, theatres, award shows and more.  I had a specific task in mind for this weekend, targeting some awesome items for a special one week auction in support of Prospect Hospice, a wonderful charity who are really helping one of my family when she needs it.  Check out their awesome work HERE I know you will agree with me just how awesome they are and why I want to back them with this auction.

idina1So… what did I manage to pull out the hat?  Loads of highlights over the weekend including meeting Frozen and Glee star Idina frozen1Menzel who signed several items including a christmas card and the cover sleeve of this awesome Frozen DVD.

There was a bit of an Xfactor theme going on as well, with Sam Bailey (2013 winner) being the first person I met over the weekend, then managing to snag all three of the 2014 finalists who will be battling it out this weekend for the title… Andrea Faustini, Fleur East and Benfleur1 Haenow. Each signed Xmas Cards which are already up for auction HERE. DSCN5622

Some really big names in there, with more additions coming from Annie Lennox, Andy Burrows (Razorlight, We Are Scientists) and the ever so lovely Nicola Benedetti.

DSCN5620One of the biggest stand outs for me over the weekend was the chance to meet Coldplay.  In the end I met 2/4 of the band, but somehow managed with luck to get all four of the band to sign ajonnybuckland Christmas Card for me with the help of their manager :D   There is the awesome card signed by Chris, Jonny, Will and DSCN5594Guy, and here’s me with Jonny :)

Moving onto the biggest event of the weekend, and the reason I wanted to be in town that Sunday… the Autosport Awards!  As always, it was tough finding out in advance who would be there… and even tougher figuring out who would arrive at the door we have access to.  Top of my list for awesome peeps to meet was Christian Horner, who is the youngest person to lead a team to the constructors title, and did so four times in a row upDSCN5589 to 2013!  I also managed Xmas Card donations from Sirs Stirling Moss and Jackie Stewart while current drivers Carlos DSCN5635Sainz Jnr, Max Chilton and Daniil Kvyat both got on board.

There were some other awesome additions… Geri Halliwell arrived with Christian, and was kind enough to sign in the scrum that followed, while GP2 Champion Jolyon Palmer also signed an Xmas Card for me.  Over the other nights, David Walliams, Jonathan Ross, Richard Coles and more got on board.  I did also meet Ed Sheeran and Amanda Abbington, but both were not able to sign for anyone due to their hurry.

DSCN5566Now… a really cool item.  I have made a promise that this item will be auctioned in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital and I will be looking into the best way to do so in the new year.  Sharon Duncan-Brewster, star of Bad Girls, Dr Who and more, had agreed via twitter to meet up with me before her show to sign a few items.  What actually happened blew me away. As well as signing my DW cards, Sharon also very kindly donated the actual Doc Marten boots she wore while filming Dr Who episode “The Waters of Mars”.  Yeah, that’s right.. actual costume worn in Dr Who. WOW!  I was gobsmacked and I still am.  I cannot thank Sharon enough for her generosity.  Just WOW.

My final words… check out the Xmas Cards currently online, help me raise money for Prospect Hospice. prospectlogo

Thank You :)

Prospect Hospice Auction

Apologies for the lack of posting lately, I have had a few personal issues which have set me prospectlogoback a bit.  It’s not really affected anything too badly as I had always planned to hold off listing anything until this week :)

So…. I am delighted to announce my last Xmas Card auction of 2014, which will be held in support of a very special charity… Prospect Hospice.   The awesome people there have been providing support to one of my family at a crucial time for her, and I am delighted to be able to help them in this small way.  The first round of Xmas Cards are currently listed on my auction page (CLICK HERE TO CHECK THEM OUT) and I will be steadily adding more in the next 48 hours.  I managed to get quite a few signed up over the last few days DSCN5620when I was down in London, including cards from Coldplay, the Xfactor finalists and Idina Menzel to name a few … more to follow on that shortly … so there are some really amazing cards included.

Christmas is 14 days away, so don’t miss out on this chance to snap up an awesome present for that special person (or yourself!) and help out an amazing charity at the same time.


Thank You x

Imagine that in just the same tone as used by Rick Savage on the telly :D  I’m seriously blown away with how well the auctions have gone in the last couple of weeks, with the total going to Children with Cancer UK rising by the day.   These were the final auctions until DSCN5497some special plans I have for December (more on that to follow nearer the time), but there is still time to make an offer for the auctions that didn’t sell, including this awesome signed Xmas Card from Thor and Avengers star Tom Hiddleston.

Click HERE to check out all the items remaining, I won’t be making the donation to CWCUK until all the items have reached their donations as I like all buyers to be happy with items in their hands before passing the money on :)  Short story this means that you can still add to the total (which is already awesome by the way, a very cool three figure amount!) by making an offer for any of those items that don’t say SOLD next to them yet.  Just email me on and we’ll see if we can work out something.

As you can probably tell, I am pretty excited about this donation, and it’s all thanks to the awesome celebs who sign for me, the amazing people who help me get items signed and you wonderful people who bid on my items.

Anyways, enough rambling, stuff to do, auction items to post and all that jazz.
