An eBay auction is being launched next week on behalf of a county hospice, presenting fans with a chance to obtain momentos of one of Market Rasen’s most famous schoolboys.
Bernie Taupin was educated at the town’s secondary modern school in the 60s.
His autobiography about his childhood and youth in and around Market Rasen up to the point when he leaves to make his fortune in London, a photograph and DVDs and CDs are all autographed and come with a letter of endorsement from Bernie.
The items have been acquired from Bernie and Elton by the Butterfly Hospice at Boston for auction. They are going on eBay in five lots at between 1 and 2 p.m. on October 8 and will be open for bidding over 10 days.
