Pratchett's Luggage auctioned for Alzheimer's research

No primary category set

The Luggage, in aid of AlzheimerFans of Terry Pratchet have the opportunity to bid on a unique bit of memorabilia this week, and to help a very good cause at the same time. Up for auction on eBay UK is a one-off replica of the Luggage, filled with a complete library of Pratchett’s books, signed by the author, the production designs for the Luggage as seen in Sky One’s adaption of The Colour of Magic, and a copy of the 25th anniversary edition of TCoM, signed by the stars of the TV adaption, Sir David Jason and Sean Astin.

The auction is in aid of the Alzheimer’s Research Trust. Pterry was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s last year, and has recently announced that he has donated ยฃ500,000 towards Alzheimer’s research. Fans have started a ‘Match It for Pratchett’ campaign, to encourage 500,000 readers to donate ยฃ1 each to match Pterry’s donation.

This is a cause very close to my family’s heart, so I hope no one minds me pimping it here.

  1. Do you think they hadn’t put enough off site links in and some one at Ebay kindly asked them to stick a few sponsored ones in? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Who advised them on this listing? – It was always going to be a high profile one

  2. Is this where bidder ID restrictions work against a charity sale.

    I would bid on this to get my name on the list as supporting the Lord Pterry but it’s not worth it to be bidder 25.

    I assume this will go for more than I can afford. ๐Ÿ˜†
