The British Airways HighLife in-flight magazine is running a Christmas charity auction much like our own luxury travel auctions.

My favourite auction item is: Two return Club World flights London to Las Vegas over New Year Eve +
Tickets to an exclusive New Year’s private casino party
Tickets to see Lionel Richie live
Dinner at Mr Chow and Restaurant Guy Savoy
This item is currently on £2,355.

Another interesting item is 150,000 Avios points (worth £1,500 according to my Avios valuation) plus “five space-available upgrades on British Airways flights”. These upgrades would be confirmed or denied 48 hours before departure. You have two years to use the upgrades. They are not valid on Avios bookings or Sydney flights. Currently £3050.

Finally there is a lot for a £2,000 voucher for Selfridges London and a personal shopper to help you spend it. Then bed down in The Beaumont Hotel in London after dinner for two at The Colony Grill Room. But that’s not all. The next day, seek out the wonders of Burlington Arcade and the Manolo Blahnik store for a VIP experience in the private room, where you can select a pair of Hangisi embellished satin heels (worth £750) in your favourite shade while sipping a well earned glass of Champagne. Currently £1,300.

All of the proceeds go to Flying Start for good causes and do read the strict ts and cs.
