Hanks' Da Vinci Code copy raises £2250 for charity

TOM HANKS' well-thumbed copy of The Da Vinci Code, purchased at Rosslyn Chapel, has confounded all expectations by raising more than £2000 for charity. Macmillan Cancer Relief placed the book, donated by the actor, on eBay with the hope of receiving £1000. The copy attracted bidders from across the globe, including people from the United States and Germany. However, it was Mr Tyco Ondude from Sweden who swooped in with a bid of £2250, just 20 seconds from the auction's close. "We were rooting for him all the way," said Kirsty Tomassi of the Macmillan Cancer Relief. "He started bidding from the start and got it at the last minute." [More]
