SFX Weekender Charity Auction Announced

Updated! With top new prizes to bid for at this year’s charity auction

[Latest exciting addtions in bold below] Using money to purchase goods and services feels good (except when you’re paying a man £100 an hour to look at your boiler while he scratches his beard), but giving money to those who really need it feels even better, which is why we’ve combined the two for the SFX Weekender 3’s Charity Auction in aid of Great Ormond Street.

SFX’s own Adrian Hill will be taking to the stage again on the Friday night of this year’s weekend-long festival of sci-fi to auction off a host of must-own items for charidee including:

  • The original hand-written Christmas note from Matt Smith (as featured in SFX Issue 217)
  • A coat worn by the Cat in Red Dwarf (courtesy of Prop store of London)
  • The Red Dwarf edition of SFX (as seen in Back To Earth)
