Snow for Christmas in Dudley – Guaranteed!

CATEGORY: News

A charity Auction-style listing on eBay.co.uk has netted £1,550 for ChildLine, a service for the NSPCC, as a buyer in Dudley has bought the promise of a personal White Christmas.


The sale, which promises the winning bidder 10 tonnes of snow delivered on Christmas eve, was organised by SNO!zone, the UK’s premier indoor REAL snow slopes.

The company will deliver the snow to be spread across the winning bidder’s garden to guarantee a winter wonderland for Christmas day – even down to a snowman in the winning bidder’s garden.

Richard Kanareck, eBay spokesperson added: “We all dream of a White Christmas. We are delighted that for someone, eBay and ChildLine have made that dream come true.”

ChildLine President and founder Esther Rantzen CBE, said: “This white Christmas will bring a lot of happiness to children and we are very grateful to the bidder for their generosity and hope that they enjoy their winter wonderland.”

The proceeds will help ChildLine reach its 20th birthday goal of £20m to help answer calls from at least another 1,000 children every day. The helpline has approximately 1,400 volunteer counsellors but there is still a huge demand for the service. Around 4,500 children across the UK call for help each day, but 2,000 are unable to get through to get the help they so desperately need and this can mean they continue to suffer untold pain.
