The recent Oxfam auction to help survivors of the Haitian earthquake has raised US$190,000 for the charity.

“I’d like to thank everyone involved,” said Emily Eavis, organizer of the auction and of the Glastonbury music festival. “Everyone’s been so generous, it’s fantastic to see how much people care. When we first had the idea of an auction for Haiti I never imagined we would raise so much. This should really help to rebuild some of what was lost.”

The auction featured a massive range of items donated by stars such as Radiohead, Coldplay, Chris Martin, Annie Lennox, Rolf Harris, Pearl Jam, the Arctic Monkeys, Bryan Ferry and many more.
