Rupert Auctions Jacket on Ebay for Charity! (UPDATED)

Many thanks to Vanessa from Sense.org for letting us know that Rupert has very kindly donated a jacket to the charity, which is currently being auctioned on Ebay!

This jacket was worn by Rupert at both the Goblet of Fire, New York Premiere and at the 2006 NME Awards Show!

Sense is a national charity that has supported and campaigned for children and adults who are deafblind for over 50 years. We provide specialist information, advice and services to deafblind people, their families, carers and the professionals who work with them. We run services across England, Wales and Northern Ireland and employ 2,000 people most of whom work in services directly with deafblind people. Our patron is HRH The Princess Royal. Visit www.sense.org.uk

UPDATE: After receiving a tip from LisaUK, Sense has confirmed that the auction for Rupert's jacket (as well as the jacket for Emma's t-shirt and waistcoat) were voided. It turns out that the auction's highest bid came from an account that had been hacked into just before the bidding ended.

Snitchseeker spoke with Jane Arnell, Sense's director of fundraising, who told them:

"We are absolutely appalled this crime has taken place. These vital funds could have been spent on much needed holidays for five deafblind children. Second time around potential bidders will be asked to provide a form of upfront identification to be pre-approved. It’s a simple procedure and we hope it doesn’t stop people from bidding again."

The jacket is now up for re-auction, with the starting bid at £19.99.
The listing for this item can now be found here! Bidding ends on March 21st.
