Now I've hustled a pair of jeans
Monday's Daily Mirror newspaper in the UK has managed to get David Bowie's Reality tour jeans as one of 30 donations from celebrities for a charity raffle.
It's all in aid of The Mirror's ongoing
Between now and the end of 2005, Oxfam and the Daily Mirror will be reporting regularly on the progress of Nyamikamba - the Village of Hope. The Village of Hope is a joint appeal by Oxfam and the Daily Mirror to help the people of Nyamkamba in northern Rwanda.
And, here's a bit from Monday's Mirror:
Britain's biggest stars are backing the Mirror's Village Of Hope appeal by donating something special. Today we're giving them all away and if you ring our phoneline one could be yours..
Here's what they say about the pair of strides above, as worn on the A Reality Tour DVD cover:
DAVID BOWIE'S FAVE JEANS
HE was once known as the Thin White Duke and had a hit with Blue Jean, but now David confesses his favourite clobber is a pair of tight black denims. And you can pull on a pair - as worn by the singer on his Reality tour - with a black T-shirt to complete the contemporary Bowie look. Call: 09069123600 (Lot 10)
Here's what you have to do to have a chance of winning one of these thirty incredible prizes, according to The Mirror:
Just call 09069 123 600 and state the lot number of the item you want. (The Bowie Jeans are Lot 10) Then answer a simple question and leave your name and phone number. Winners will be selected at random from all correct entries.
You can also text CHARITY followed by a space and your two-digit code number to 84080 (Rol, 57788). Calls cost just Ã‚Â£1 and the more often you ring or text, the more chances you have to win.
Remember, it's all for charity. One pound doesn't mean much to you but in a poor, rural part of Africa where most people live on just six pence a day it can be a real Lifesaver.
Phone lines are supplied by Eckoh Technologies who, with The Mirror - will donate all profit to our Village Of Hope Appeal. Texts cost Ã‚Â£1.50 (Rol, 2 euro). Standard MGN rules apply.
Sadly, I don't think these numbers work outside the UK...but, if you would still like to donate, go
Obviously there are 29 other donations, from Mick Jagger's signed guitar via Sir Cliff Richard's Shoes, to Tea at No.10 with Tony Blair, or Dinner at The Osbournes'. Yeah, right! who of you is going to be interested in anything other that lot #10.
A quid to get inside David Bowie's jeans...Now, that's what I call a bargain!
