Charity auction site gives Coronation Street fans chance to vist Street set

With thanks to ITV for letting the blog know about this!

Ever watched Coronation Street and wondered what it would be like to visit the set and meet the cast? This could be your lucky day! Charity auction site, http://www.buyoncegivetwice.com/ has a fantastic auction lot that would delight any Corrie fan - a unique trip for four to the Coronation Street set.

Buy Once Give Twice resells lots which have been won and gone unclaimed after charity auctions; giving the charity a second chance to raise funds from the lot. This great lot, donated by Kevin Korkin and ITV, gives the winning bidder a ‘once in a lifetime’ chance to visit all the landmarks from the show. Not only will they get to spend a day on the Coronation Street set, they even a personal tour guide - Ken Barlow!

William Roach (who plays Ken) will help the winning party relive their favourite moments from the show as he guides them around the show’s sets. They can buy a paper from The Kabin, have a cuppa at Roy’s Rolls, watch the drama unfold at Underworld and even grab a pint with Ken in the Rovers. Schedules permitting, they'll also get a chance to meet with other members of cast and watch some filming.

What you have to do is go to http://www.buyoncegivetwice.co.uk/lots/coronation_street to get in on the action, and give kindly to charity.

I would have happily bid a few hundred quid for this but the reserve price is £2000 so even on a full time wage from Marks and Spencer, I still can't afford it. Meh!

Yes, they'd probably take in more money if they lowerd that price to about 100 quid or so

Someone will bid £2000 though. It'll be some high flying businessman or something. It's bound to sell

Yes, it'd be a real shame if it ended up a corporate gift insstead of going to real fans.
