The Last Leg is pretty irreverent about disability, often with strong language to colour the jokes, but Adam Hills includes poking fun at himself, and has currently painted his own prosthetic leg in the colours of the Ghanaian flag as part of the show.
A fan of the show knitted Adam in the dress of a London 2012 Gamesmaker uniform, holding his prosthetic leg in his hand. They then stuck it on eBay with 100% of the proceeds going through eBay for Charity to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
When the show started knitted Adam Hills was sitting with a £15 bid, but within seconds of the mention on Channel4 the bids started rolling in. Before the end of the next ad break the bidding had exceeded £1000 with 60 bids from 35 bidders and it’s not showing any signs of slowing down.
While I’ve been writing this article the bidding for the has already shot to over £2000 and rising!
