The Edinburgh Festival Blog quietened for a day or two as yours truly picked up a hell of a bug from being out in the torrential rain. Will this rain EVER stop?Back in the groove tomorrow though (thank god) so expect normal service to resume then.
On to auction stock, and I was delighted to receive a bonus item today from Australian cricket star Michael De Venuto. As well as signing the items I enclosed for the team, he also sent one of his match shirts, fully signed by the Durham CC squad, including England stars Steve Harmison, Liam Plunkett and Paul Collingwood, as well as, of course himself. The name and number side of the shirt is above while the signed front is to the right.
This, like my other items, will go into the next auctions in September.
HUGE thanks to Michael for his very generous donation to the fundraising… above and beyond!
