29 th November 2012. London, UK : Ever fancied owning a full size Assassin’s Creed assassin? How would a life-size Connor Kenway statue look in your hallway? How about a full Burnout race suit as worn and signed by the legendary David Hasselhoff for those vital last minute Xmas shopping runs?

Maybe a pair of Adidas F50 Boots  signed by Welsh dribble wizard Gareth Bale are more your thing? Or a signed copy of We Sing Robbie Williams signed by the ‘entertainer’ himself or perhaps an extremely rare Tomb Raider Amanda Evert Doll is your most wanted?

Well, these and many other items of hugely desirable gaming merchandise and collectable goodies are up for grabs in GamesAid’s annual Elite Charity Auction , where you can bid on these and many more items and in the process, raise money for many deserving causes this Christmas.

GamesAid is the UK games industry’s charitable collective which raises funds for UK gaming charities like Special Effect ,  which is dedicated to helping young people with disabilities enjoy computer games through cutting edge technology and the Willow Foundation , which provides positive and life-enhancing special days for seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds.

This is a hugely worthy cause which will not only give you a very warm feeling inside this Christmas, but also allow you to scoop unique gaming memorabilia which will make you the envy of your friends.

Here’s some just some of the major items up for grabs, all collected as a result of the #GamesAidOnWheels campaign, but there’s also plenty of more minor very affordable items and every single one will raise cash so all contributions are most gratefully received!
