AN auction of quirky Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ride theming, staged by Alton Towers, has attracted thousands of bids and raised over £10,700 for charity. The Oompa-lump sum of cash was raised by Alton Towers Resort as it auctioned off items from its former Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ride to make way for its latest attraction, the Alton Towers Dungeon, which opens next month. Both theme park and Roald Dahl fans jumped at the chance to get their hands on some golden memorabilia, raising £10,781, which will now be split between two UK charities.
