By on

Signed books by JK Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Jenson Button, Richard Branson, Ricky Gervais, Michael Parkinson and many more are going under the hammer for charity thanks to the work of a man from Bristol, UK.

Grant Thompson has been collecting the autographed books from celebrities for the last two years, and is now selling them for a local MS charity.

“JK Rowling was my first book which [then] got me started from there,” Thompson told the BBC. “Originally I was trying to keep everything Bristol-based and I knew JK Rowling lived outside Bristol. Also her mum had MS as well, so it started with that really.”

The JK Rowling book he is talking about is a signed first edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – which will be sold along with signed photos of the Harry Potter film stars.

Money from the auction will go to BrAMS, a centre for MS research based at Frenchay Hospital.

Other stars who have signed books include Stephen Fry, Alan Shearer, Ranulph Fiennes and David Attenborough.
