A wall signed by all five members of boyband One Direction has sold on ebay for £1,120.
The wall was signed by the band, which includes Wolverhampton’s Liam Payne, during a visit to Free Radio’s Tettenhall Road studios in the city.
It is being carefully removed as the station moves to a new base in Oldbury over the next few weeks.
The station decided to put the wall up for auction on ebay to raise money for the Kelli Smith Appeal.
It is raising cash for four-year-old Kelli so her family can send her abroad for treatment to prevent her suffering a relapse of neuroblastoma, which she was diagnosed with aged three months.
The auction was dealt a blow yesterday when it emerged the highest bid, which had reached £5,200, had been withdrawn.
Bidding has now closed at the price of £1,120.
Kelli’s father Tom Attwater, who is himself suffering from a terminal brain tumour, said he and his fiancée Joely Smith were grateful to the radio station.
“Joely and I are very thankful to Free Radio for helping us to raise money for our little girl,” he said. “Please keep helping Kelli – all the support from the West Midlands community so far is amazing.”
Tom, formerly of Pattingham, and Joely are raising £500,000 for the appeal to send Kelli for treatment currently not available in this country.
Donations to the Kelli Smith Appeal can be made at justgiving.com/helpkelli or by texting STOP60 followed by an amount between £1 and £10 to 70070.
