eBay boost for Amy Winehouse charity


Online auction firm eBay is to boost a fund set up in memory of Amy Winehouse on the first anniversary of her death.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was established by her family, is to be eBay's charity of the week from Sunday.

Users of the service will have a chance to donate to the organisation which helps and supports disadvantaged young people.

Back To Black singer Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning after a binge which followed a period of abstinence.

The foundation was set up last September on what would have been her 28th birthday.
