Rovers Return Tiles Auctioned For Manchester Bomb Victims

Bidding is now live in the eBay auction to win Coronation Street tiles from the Rovers Return pub.

There are 22 tiles for sale, representing the 22 people killed in the Manchester bomb attack.

The tiles are being sold to raise money for the families of those killed and injured in this horrific and cowardly attack. 100% of proceeds from the auction are going towards the Manchester Evening News fundraising page.

This is your chance to own a beautiful, original piece of art whilst helping a great cause.

Manchester Art Director Nick Franklin has created 22 Manchester Worker Bees on iconic, screen-used tiles from the Rovers Return CORONATION STREET set! These were kindly donated to Nick by Granada and he has painted, numbered and signed each tile individually. This is a complete one-off and really special thing to own.

The tiles will also come with a letter of authentication from ITV. There are 22 framed tiles available, so keep an eye on the other auctions popping up!

Each tile started at the price of £30 but all of them have already been bid on for amounts far higher. This is a brilliant cause.
