The main idea of The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead to sell Olympic items on eBay is to raise money for its Mayor’s Benevolent Fund. The auction has more than 300 lots like flags, and many other souvenirs among which two large Wenlock figures could be seen. The starting price of these two figures is £250. Many of the items that were used at the Eton Dorney rowing events are expected to go on sale on Thursday.
The authority’s lead member for the 2012 Games, Simon Dudley, said: “We have experienced one of the most memorable years in the borough’s history and we now have the happy task of finding good homes for all the items we were provided with to decorate roads, parks and car parks leading up to and during games time.”
He also mentioned that he was sure these items would suit all pockets as there are in fact banners and flags which are still in their original wrappings. According to him people show great deal of interest in the Wenlock mascots so they expected healthy biddings on these items.
Mayor Colin Rayner said: “The benevolent fund was set up many years ago specifically to help alleviate poverty in the borough and this will be a very welcome seasonal boost.”
The money from the auctions will be used to help people in need in the harsh winter times.
The last auction will be on 16 December.
