The auction will run until 20:00hrs on 24th April 2020. Whomever is the highest bidder at this point wins the item and will be requested to pay via PayPal (bank transfer, cheque etc. also accepted).
Due to the current lockdown situation, there may be a slight delay in getting some of the items to the winning bidder, however if this is the case then we won't request the money until the item can be posted or collected.
