ESC relaunches charity huge auction site

The Entertainment Software Charity, an industry initiative to support youth charities, has relaunched its eBay site offering a wide array of games and memorabilia donated by gaming companies.

The Entertainment Software Charity has relaunched its eBay website with a raft of new offerings donated by companies within the games industry.

The ESC's 15 pages of charity auctions include a number of limited edition items and some unique gaming memorabilia including a Tomb Raider promotional set featuring wine, music and an oyster knife, Thunderbirds Wellington boots and all manner of games, T-shirts, cuddly toys and even football shirts.

The ESC eBay page can be found here.

All the money raised through the auctions will go to the ESC's supported youth charities covering education, health and personal development.

Mark Strachan, CEO of the non-profit organisation, said support throughout the industry "has been nothing short of amazing".

"Not only is it raising money for great causes, but it allows consumers to get their hands on certain items that just can't be bought anywhere else. It is a fantastic way of ensuring that everybody wins."

Founded in 2000, the ESC is an organisation run by members of the games industry and has also been responsible for charity bundles featuring multiple PS2 and Xbox games from the likes of EA, Sony, Criterion and Eidos - with proceeds from these sales also going to ESC's chosen youth charities.
