After the success of the Unicycle auction last week, which raised £70 for the Haiti disaster, Emma has brought in a banjo which she has had cluttering her loft for a while.

It is surplus to requirements, so Emma thought she might as well let us auction it off as well. Again all proceeds will go to Haiti.

This is a brand new, never used banjo, and it's quite a good one. Bidding starts at £100.

Here are some more details (if you want any other photos or details, let us know)-

Stagg 5-string Bluegrass deluxe banjo.
