Last night’s Oxfam auction to launch the charity’s new pop-up Curiosity Shop raised over £215,000 in just two hours, ensuring that the total amount raised by the time the store closes on April 10 is sure to be beat last year’s shop total of £250,000. Stars, including Livia and Colin Firth, Rupert Friend and Imogen Heap, made bids for over 12 lots – with the star prize of Annie Lennox singing tunes chosen by members of the audience going for £15,000 per song.

From Twitter we know that Annie Lennox played There Must be An Angel, but at £15K a song, im sure she sang a lot more!
