High flying All Blacks Captain auctions flight.
Richie McCaw is known for his love of aviation so it’s no surprise to see his face against an online fund riser. The Trademe auction currently sits at NZ$1241 but knowing his sporting status it’s expected to go higher.
The auction is to have Richie McCaw as your personal glider instructor. You’ll take the controls under the guidance of the rugby star to safely introduce you to the sport of gliding.
The auction site says “Proceeds from this auction will be split 70 / 30 between the Hororata St Johns Church, and the Canterbury Gliding Club. The church requires expensive restoration work following the recent 7.1 magnitude earthquake and the gliding club is raising funds to assist with the clubs relocation to a new airfield at Springfield.”
Update: 2 Nov 2010 – The auction price has gone over $2000.
