Online auction countdown for top TV dates

Bids are being invited for a special auction to win tickets for two very British comedies.

Tickets for the BBC’s Graham Norton Show and Sky’s A League of Their Own will be available until Tuesday 30 May at 23.59.

Organisers at St Richard’s Hospice are running the online auction at http://www.jumblebee.co.uk/vipthejump.

All proceeds from the auction will go towards continuing to help the hospice provide free specialist palliative care to patients and their loved ones in Worcestershire.

Both prizes will offer the successful bidders an unforgettable experience.

The two tickets to the filming of comedy chat show The Graham Norton Show at The London Studios on the Southbank will also include an exclusive backstage tour with the show’s director, Steve Smith.

Two tickets for sports based comedy game show A League of Their Own – recorded at Elstree Studios in Boreham Wood – include the possible opportunity to meet presenter James Corden – famous for his character Smithy in the BBC Three show Gavin and Stacey – and his fellow co-hosts.

Terms and Conditions apply to both prizes.  Entrants for both must be over 18 years old.

For The Graham Norton Show those bidding must be available to attend the filming on 15 and/or 22 June; for a League of Their Own those bidding must be free on 28 and 30 June as well as 3,5,7,10,12 and 14 July.  For both shows, tickets are non-transferable and the successful bidder will be responsible for their own travel to and from the studios.

Charlie Horner, Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice said : “These are absolutely fabulous prizes with added extras too!  But time is now running out so we would urge British comedy lovers to get involved, make a bid and help support our valuable care for those with life-limiting illnesses. With the current waiting list to attend the recording of The Graham Norton Show standing at one year, this is a not to be missed opportunity!”

The prizes have been donated by So Television for The Graham Norton Show and Sky UK for A League of Their Own.
