East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) was able to raise £29,212 from online auctions through September and October.

Although these have been record breaking results the charity is calling on volunteers.

Amongst the best sellers were a Harrows Quadro dartboard which sold for £260.79 Disney pin badges for £135 and a set of eight Villeroy and Boch dinner plates for £158.

Jason High, EACH eBay manager, said: 'The recent growth and success of the eBay shop has been phenomenal.

'We could really do with a drafting volunteer to help photograph and list items, and a post room volunteer to help wrap and package them.'

EACH's eBay shop opened in March 2015. Items are listed, sold, packaged and posted at the charity's Retail Distribution Centre (RDC) in Thetford.
