Stephen Lane, Prop Store CEO, commented on the upcoming auction: “T2 Trainspotting is a film that was highly anticipated by fans of Danny Boyle’s original, which certainly didn’t disappoint. We’re thrilled to be able to offer these great props and costumes whilst supporting two fantastic charities, The Junction and Calton Athletic who are doing terrific things for communities in Scotland.”
Andrew Macdonald, Producer of Trainspotting and T2 Trainspotting, explains: “I was introduced to The Junction by their Patron Irvine Welsh last April, and was so impressed by what I had seen that when it came to choosing the two beneficiaries of T2 Trainspotting memorabilia auction The Junction was an obvious choice. It feels really apt to be supporting The Junction in this way as it works with young people to reach their potential on the very streets Trainspotting grew out of.”
Calton Athletic was a natural choice to support with the auction also – you might remember them from the opening of the original Trainspotting – the team the boys play are none other than the Calton Athletic five-a-side team. The charity was key to accessing the drug world and they remain an inspiration and do wonderful things for the cause.
The auction begins at 5:00pm GMT on Monday 10th April. Lots can be viewed and bidders can register to participate at http://propstoreauction.com/view-auctions/info/id/69/.
