Dinner with some All Blacks in London, a signed Snow Patrol guitar and the chance to star in your very own Comic artwork with the Justice League are among 30 auction items up for grabs in Air New Zealand’s 30th anniversary eBay charity auction which goes live today.
To celebrate 30 years of flying between London and Los Angeles, Air New Zealand has enlisted the help of some of its more recognised passengers to donate exclusive auction items and experiences, with the aim of raising more than £30,000 for Phab – a small UK based charity which encourages people with and without physical disabilities to come together on equal terms through its clubs and activity weeks.
The money raised in the auction will go towards Phab’s 2012 Activity Week in the New Forest in August. The extra care and specialist tuition that is needed to enable a disabled child to benefit from these life-changing events costs Phab around £1000 per child. The benefits are huge and give kids of all abilities a chance to experience activities ranging from zip wire to kayaking and rock climbing.

Air New Zealand General Manager, Europe Chris Myers says, “30 years is a milestone worth celebrating and we also wanted to be able to use it to help out our chosen charity Phab. We’ll be starting everything in the auction at 99p which gives everyone a fair chance to get their hands on some cool things for a fantastic cause”.
