Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

CASH IN THE ATTIC

Date: 21st April 2008

Just been visited by the 'Celebrity Cash in the Attic' team.  Considering that I've downsized my home twice in the last ten years, I'm staggered at the 'stuff' I've still got - some of which I'd forgotten I had.

What happens is the team visits to see what one is prepared to offer for the sale which benefits a charity of your choice.  I've chosen to donate the proceeds to 'Orchid' the Male Cancer Charity for which my son recently did a sky dive in Capetown (whilst on holiday with me)  and raised almost £4,000  in sponsorship.  Orchid is a small charity and needs all the money it can get for research into the three main male cancers - Testicular (which my son has had)  Penile and Prostate.

I've offered

  1. My Eurovision Song Contest Dress (1982) and which still fits!!!!
  2. Other dresses by designers such as Roland Klein and Zandra Rhodes           
  3. Two pieces of silver ware made by me at Adult Education Silver Classes
  4. A Ring made at Adult Ed. Jewellery
  5. A piece of Costume Jewellery by Les Bernard (American jeweller - well-known)
  6. A Brooch and Earrings by Andrew Logan - who made many pieces of jewellery to adorn and complement the clothes of Zandra Rhodes
  7. Some of my books - autographed
  8. Some signed photos of me with my Sponsored Cheetah
  9. T- shirt worn by me in Celebrity
  10. A large collection of 'Commercial' Perfume Bottles.  I used to collect the antique ones until they got too expensive and then turned my attention to all the beautiful bottles in which scent is packaged.  Can't believe I've gone through that much perfume in the last few decades.

And other items

The team decide what they want out of the above and a few other bits and pieces  and then they go to auction in Chiswick on 6th May.  Apparently my 'Lot' will be auctioned around lunch time.

 SO IF ANY OF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BID, DO COME ALONG OR PLACE A TELEPHONE BID - when I have further details I'll give them to you.

 I shall be there on the day and delighted to meet and talk with you.  When I know the transmission date I'll pass it on

PLEASE BE GENEROUS.
