EACH records best-ever week as £4,784 made on eBay store
A children’s hospice has enjoyed its best-ever week on eBay after taking £4,784.
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) auctioned 195 items - donated to the charity - between January 22 and 28.
The star lots were individual pieces of a green and yellow butterfly-themed Aynsley pottery set, with a buyer from New York paying £250 for cups and saucers.
Jason High, EACH eBay manager, said: “We’re coming across more and more gems as our eBay store continues to grow. This record-breaking week, that bettered those in which we auctioned Ed Sheeran’s old clothes, took our income for January to £13,004.
“The money raised is invaluable as we have to raise almost £6 million a year to sustain our vital care and support service.”
Opened in March 2015 Each’s eBay store lists, sells, packages and posts around 900 items every month from the Retail Distribution Centre in Thetford.
