Lucky This is Oxfordshire readers could buy the champagne trip of a lifetime on Concorde and it could cost as little as 1.

The flights are among 50 offers in an on-line auction launched today.

Any of the items on offer from a limited-edition Picasso print to a spectacular hot-air balloon trip for two at the Oxfordshire Balloon Show in May, or the chance to drive one of the most powerful racing boats in the world could be yours for 1 if no-one puts in a higher bid.

The auction runs for six weeks. Bidding starts at just 1 and there is no reserve. Up for grabs over the weeks will be: *A Ford Puma car;

*A silk robe signed and worn by Mohammad Ali;

*Day trips on the Orient Express;

*QE2 cruise packages;

*A free-standing Sega Dreamcast unit;

*State-of-the-art wide-screen TVs, plus DVDs, MP3s and PDAs;

*Dinner for four on a submarine;

*A Manchester United Champions League shirt signed by all the players in last season's historic final; and

*A skiing lesson with Eddie The Eagle Edwards. And don't worry if you're an online technophobe the organisers have set up a simple step-by-step guide to help you take part in the auction.

Simply log in to the website at and the guide will appear on-screen.
