The has been sold on eBay, with the private-feedback winner making a huge £14,500 high bid.
Certified by the administrators to be the very last, the bag of sweets was donated by an ex-employee. It was sold to benefit the charity Retail Trust, which offers counselling, legal advice, career development and retirement housing for those who work in the retail industry.
