Do something for Bletchley park and win unique shed items during Shed Week

As you know, Bletchley Park is the charity for Shed Week 2010.

During World War II, Bletchley Park was the site of the United Kingdom’s main decryption establishment, the Government Code and Cypher School. Ciphers and codes of several Axis countries were decrypted there, most importantly ciphers generated by the German Enigma and Lorenz machines.

Read more about the History of Bletchley Park and what it did for the War effort and the future of computing/the interwebs and sheds.

Hut 6 which won our Hut of the year 2009, is in a right state as you can see from this recent photo from #Bpark campaigner Sue Black

So to support them in my own little sheddie way, I have decided to run a charity auction on ebay with the blessing of Bletchley Park (100% goes to them) in the run-up to Shed Week 2010 (which starts 5 July)

The items already kindly pledged for the auction are:

A “bit of HUT6” from Bletchley Park itself. So you could own a bit of shed history! Hopefully it won’t fall down before the auction 🙁

A signed Hard Hat from shed judge Sarah Beeny.

A signed Moon DVD from the genius Bafta award-winning Director Duncan Jones .

A signed copy of Men and Sheds from shed guru and founding father of modern shedism Gordon Thorburn

In addition to these great items, we welcome your items for auction, any unique items relating to sheds, geeks and Bletchley Park or anything that you feel would benefit the cause and make some money for the preservation of the Huts.

If you have anything you would like to auction off then let me know.
