It’s two weeks until the auctions kick off our birthday fundraiser. After all the hints and teasing, it’s now time to reveal the surprise item that Richard has contributed to our fundraiser. I’ll spare you more intro, I know you are itching to find out… Despite all the teasing, I actually did think of you all when I unpacked the parcel – and I made a video of the unwrapping so that I can bring you along.
WORD OF WARNING: Please make sure you are sitting before you continue, put your drinks down and keep the smelling salts close by. I take no responsibility for any choking or spilled drinks! 😉
Are you still alive? Able to speak again? Yeah, took me a moment, too.
Maybe this close-up of the leather didn’t help, either. Yeah. Right.
Well, *we* are not unhappy that Richard has passed on Guy’s jacket for the auction. It’s a fantastic contribution, and
I am hoping I am sure that there will be much interest in this authentic piece of set costume. I’m assuming it was custom-made to fit Richard, and it has all its closures still intact, with some obvious wear and tear from many days of hard work on the set. The leather is surprisingly soft in places – and those shoulders look pretty impressive!
So, a huge big thank you, Richard, for this truly surprising contribution to the fundraiser. I would never have guessed that you would part with such a big souvenir from the Robin Hood set, despite the cheeky selfie that you posted a while ago. That jacket – that’s Giz personified in leather. There must be a good bit of blood and sweat in this jacket – Hungary being so hot during the summers you filmed there – but hopefully not any tears. Your generous donation will make fans very happy. Not just the lucky future winner of the auction, but also many others who are simply thrilled that you reached out with this amazing gift to the fundraiser. Combined with our own contributions and donations, it’s looking to be truly unforgettable. And maybe, maybe, it might make the number connected to the birthday a little more bearable… Thank you ❤️
Off to our financial advisors we go… 😉
The auction for this item (and many other fan-donated items) will commence on the 15th of August 2021. More information over the coming weeks – or for those new here: general explanation of where and how the auctions and fundraiser will take place can be found in my recent auction announcement.
And now share away and let anyone know who may be interested in this unique, amazing piece of fan memorabilia! Thank you 😘
Edit: Exchanged placeholder images, now that the reveal is over and done with 😉
