Kissing For ConservationMany of you will recall our recent news item giving you the frankly rather unexpected opportunity to bid for a kiss from Nick Mason. The auction, organised by the online charity website Buy Once Give Twice, has proved very successful so far, with a smacker from Mr Mason seemingly more desirable than one from the likes of actor Nigel Havers, and supermodel Sophie Dahl!

With the amount of bids so far, the organisers have decided to extend the finishing time of the auction to 8pm GMT tonight - so if you've been considering this, you've still got your opportunity.

Click here for the auction, which is to raise money for the conservation of Asian elephants, and along with the smacker from our favourite drummer, you also get a date with an elephant (kiss, no doubt, optional)...

Last year, you might remember, Buy Once Give Twice had a wonderful Gerald Scarfe hand-painted guitar celebrating Pink Floyd's The Wall up for auction. More details, and exclusive picture, here.

UPDATE: Bidding finished for this opportunity at a lip-puckeringly good total of £560!
