Winning bid to be Aimee Robinson’s plus-one revealed

HOW much would you pay to be a plus one for a Huntingdonshire woman at her brother’s wedding ... the answer is �535.

More than 18 people bid for a chance to escort PR consultant Aimee Robinson to her brother’s wedding at The Old Bridge Hotel on December 3.

The 25-year-old, who hopes to raise �5,000 for Diabetes UK by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in January, opted to bypass the dating websites and put herself on the market by offering a night as her chaperone to the highest bidder on eBay.

The lucky winner scooped the prize at the last-minute, after the deadline was extended to 5pm on Monday. The identity of the winner remains a mystery however.

Aimee, who works in London and is formerly of Little Stukeley, thinks the final figure is a “bit of a bargain.” All proceeds from the auction will go to Diabetes UK.

“We kept watching the site last week and it was stuck on �335. At midday on Monday it went up to �350. We were watching the final half-hour and it went to �360, then �460 and the final bid was �535.

“It was a bit difficult to put on a figure on it, as you never know how much interest there might be. But I think it is a bit of a bargain.”
