He went to auction on EBay, and a very well-meaning brother who didn’t actually want it, very quickly bid right up to the reserve - which I’d been hoping, but not necessarily expecting to get.
Presumably that put anyone else off, since nobody else made a bid. Since I’d grown rather fond of the CB, I told brother shortly before the end of the auction that if nobody else bid, I was going to keep him, refund his money (having won he was obliged to pay via eBay) and donate the same myself.
However he refused to have the money back, so in the end Prostate Cancer U.K. got double.
Meanwhile my CB looks quite at home on the sideboard, guarding the whisky decanter. 🙂
