HARROGATE’S Save the Children branch has had a surprise find in its donated stock.
Volunteer shop leader Margaret Cullen was asked if the shop had any Harry Potter books in the shop.
She went to check and found a copy of The Goblet of Fire which, to her surprise, was a first edition signed by J K Rowling.
Save the Children has now had the signature authenticated and the book has been valued at £500.
The shop will be holding a silent auction to sell the book in order to raise funds to help children both in this country and abroad.
It will be on display at the shop at Commercial Street from Monday, April 30 to Monday, May 5.
