A valued member of the SiF Forums named Matthew Dawson sadly died from the cancer condition known as Rhabdomyosarcoma.
In honour of his memory, SiF will be running the auction where a Christopher Awdry signed copy of the newest Railway Series book, Thomas and His Friends is one of the things available to win.
Also included are the books The Thomas the Tank Engine Man and Sodor: Reading Between the Lines, both of which provide backgrounds to Sodor and Thomas. The items shall be shipped off for the winning bidder worldwide.
The auction starts this Wednesday September 7th 2011 where a link will be available on the SiF Fansite. Both Roll Along Thomas and SiF would like you to be kind enough to donate at least £1 or more to the charity.
With thanks to Ryan Hagan for his kind offer to help publicise the auction.
