Jeremy Clarkson hosts auction of promises in Chipping Norton
THOUSANDS of pounds were raised at an auction of promises in Chipping Norton.
Journalist, broadcaster and Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson hosted the eighth auction at the Lido which raised £15,225 - and was boosted to about £16,500 after ticket and raffle sales.
Mr Clarkson auctioned off 75 lots to a packed town hall which included a bottle of House of Commons scotch signed by The Prime Minister and an Aston Martin experience.
Writing in his Sunday Times column, he said: "The old town hall was stuffed to the gunwales with people who'd donated prizes.
“There were hundreds of them. I know because I was the auctioneer. It was a fantastic evening.”
