TV judge gives the gift of Gucci

Auckland celebrity Colin Mathura-Jeffree is giving the shirt off his back for a good cause.

The Give It Up for Hospice campaign is calling for people to donate designer clothes and jewellery to hospice stores as a fundraiser.

And Mathura-Jeffree is donating a once-worn Gucci shirt.

He says he wasn't keen to part with the shirt, but wanted to support Hospice. He thought he might find himself back in the Point Chevalier Hospice Shop to buy it back.

The model and TV star said he'd considerd donating the controversial meat dress he wore to the New Zealand Music Awards, but the shop didn't have a fridge to hold it.

He was worried about one new owner of the shirt. "I've heard Sonny Bill Williams comes in here... I'd hate to see him wearing my shirt."

Hopsice is selling the shirt via silent auction. Anyone who wants to bid can do so by midday November 25 by calling Helen at the Point Chev shop on 09 849 2258.
