clapper board from TV show Downton Abbey

This weekend's Heroes At Highclere event is boasting some rather wonderful charity auction items - and any of them would be perfect for a Christmas Present for me - just in case any rich relatives are reading this!

For starters, you can bid on the chance to be an extra on Downton Abbey. Can't you just picture me sitting there quietly waving in the background of the grand salon at Highclere? Or maybe just fussing around as a WW1 nurse in the Downton Abbey military hospital?

Or what about a flight in a helicopter, over the white cliffs of Dover, and alongside a Spitfire and a Hurricane?

It's going to be a fantastic, and huge, event - all in aid of military charities. Sunday morning, from 10, with, apparently, a top soprano singing from the grand tower and a flypast!

See you there!
